The latest results from the DEAP-3600 experiment will be presented. Located 2 km underground at SNOLAB in Sudbury, Canada, DEAP-3600 is looking to detect dark matter using 3.3 tonnes of liquid argon contained in a large ultralow-background acrylic cryostat that is instrumented with 255 photomultiplier tubes. Key to this experiment is the excellent demonstrated performance of pulse-shape discrimination against low-energy beta decays, as well as position reconstruction and other background rejection techniques against alpha decays and neutron scatters. The broad physics programme of DEAP-3600, with measurements and searches for new physics will be discussed, as well as the status of detector upgrades in progress.
