Research Ethics with Human Participants
The Humber Research Ethics Board (REB) is responsible for approving any research involving human subjects that takes place within the Humber community. The REB follows the standards set by the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS). The TCPS was developed by Canada’s three federal research granting agencies (NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR) as a way to standardize protections for human research participants in Canada.
Any research involving human subjects being conducted at Humber, or undertaken by or with Humber faculty members, staffmembers or students must be reviewed and approved by the Humber REB. REB submissions for review should be submitted to the REB (firstname.lastname@example.org) using the appropriate forms and guidelines.
NOTE: There are other ethical concerns regarding research with animals, plants, and/or environments. Please contact the Humber Research Office if you are contemplating these types of research.
