CRIPA direction, coordination and administrative as well as secretarial support are located in Université de Montréal's faculty of veterinary medicine (located in St-Hyacinthe).


The aim of the CRIPA managerial structure is to strengthen research activities. Its policy is to be dynamic, flexible and ever-mindful of fairness.


The structure consists primarily of a steering committee, which looks after on-going business, the budget and member status. Ad-hoc variations of the steering committee evaluate grants competitions and if necessary, a technology transfer committee will be set up.
