The first and foremost purpose of the Research Ethics Board is to ensure the Protection of Study Volunteers in Research.
The Research Ethics Board follows the guidelines set out in the Tri-Council Policy Statement on Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. These guidelines were released in 1998 by the Medical Research Council of Canada, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
