The design consists of a logotype made up of three identical circle shapes. Each circle is bisected with 30% of its form removed; all three have a hollowed-out middle.

One of the circles is centred above the other two. The overall shape of the logo represents the initial letters of the Council’s title: S, C and C.


The Science Council of Canada was a federal advisory organization that had the status of a federal Crown corporation. It was governed by the Science Council of Canada Act and operated from 1966 until it was disbanded in 1992.

The Council conducted multidisciplinary, consultative studies that offered policy advice to all sectors of society and all levels of government.
