The DEAP-3600 detector, currently under construction at SNOLAB, has been designed to achieve extremely low background rates from all sources, including 39Ar β-decays, neutron scatters (from internal and external sources), surface a-contamination and radon. An overview of the detector and its sensitivity are presented.
