The Humber Research Ethics Board (REB) is responsible for reviewing all research conducted by Humber faculty or staff members, and all research conducted at Humber, that involves human subjects. We work with researchers to be sure that the privacy and safety of all subjects is maintained.

If you are using one or more human subjects in your research activities under the auspices of Humber, or in any way related to Humber staff or students, you need to apply to the REB for Ethics Approval.

All research plans (protocols) or studies involving human subjects carried out by an individual connected with Humber must be reviewed and approved by the REB before work is started. For clarification: The REB will also review your research project proposal, to determine if there is a potential for conflict of interest issues.
