DEAP-3600 is a dark matter direct detection experiment in SNOLAB (Sudbury, Canada). This single-phase detector consists of 3.3 tonnes of liquid argon, viewed by an array of 255 photomultiplier tubes through 50 cm of acrylic. The collaboration has recently released dark matter search results from the _rst year of running (Nov. 2016 to Oct. 2017), with a total live time of 231 days. These proceedings detail the analysis underlying these results, including the development of a background model, which constitute the most sensitive search performed with a LAr target for WIMPs with a mass greater than 30 GeV.
