Research Ethics at Conestoga

The Research Ethics Board (REB) is a volunteer committee of experienced researchers and subject matter experts. We review all research protocols involving human participants, and apply the principles of the Tri-Council Policy Statement v2 (TCPS2): Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. These principles, Respect for Persons, Concern for Welfare and Justice are essential pillars to research conducted under the auspices of Conestoga College. The REB has the goal of facilitating applied research activities, and research activities within the classroom in accordance with these principles. Please review our resources in "Forms, Policies, Procedures" or contact the REB for more information.

Conestoga is participating in a pilot project to streamline the ethics review process for researchers conducting studies involving multiple Ontario colleges. The new Multi-College Review process will coordinate ethics reviews among the participating colleges with a view to streamlining the process for researchers and decreasing workload for Research Ethics Boards while maintaining high ethics standards. Other colleges involved in the project, which was developed by the Colleges Ontario Heads of Applied Research Subcommittee on Research Ethics, include Centennial, Fanshawe, George Brown, Georgian, Niagara and Sheridan. For more information, please contact the REB.
