The Providence St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s Healthcare Research Ethics Board (REB) ensures that research involving the participation of humans, meets current scientific and ethical standards for the protection of human research participants. The REB reviews all proposed research from scientific and ethical perspectives before research may begin, and promotes the research education of the research community.
We are now a centralized, Network Research Ethics Board. Kindly go to the link below to learn more and begin your submission process.
Please note that research training requirements have changed. Local researchers must still complete Tri-Council Policy Statement 2 Tutorial and provide the certificate with their REB submission. In addition, individuals involved in conducting human research activities, are required to have training in Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Lastly, all individuals conducting Health Canada regulated clinical drug trials are required to have training in Health Canada’s Food and Drug Regulations, Part C, Division 5: “Drugs for Clinical Trials Involving Human Subjects” (Division 5).
Training Modules are available through CITI.
