AbstractOver the past century the National Research Council of Canada has led the way in many areas of primary metrology, which have benefitted Canadian society considerably - and will continue to do so. Behind virtually everything that the public uses and consumes is the science of metrology, which is constantly evolving with society’s needs. in this science, we measure physical quantities related to everyday experience. If you have ever been late for a meeting, had to run to work, go to the gym or turn on the air conditioning, you have experienced the results of the work of metrologists: time, distance, weight and temperature, are all studied.
