About Us

What We Do

The Research Ethics Board is responsible for reviewing all research involving human participants conducted by Ontario Tech’s faculty members, staff, or students, regardless of where the research is conducted to ensure the safety and well-being of the human participants.

This also applies to research conducted on Ontario Tech premises by researchers who are not members of the university community. The REB ensures compliance with Canada’s Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. The Board is also responsible for educating the Ontario Tech community and setting University policies with respect to research involving human participants.

Who We Are

The Ontario Tech REB is the University’s Research Ethics Board.

Our Board members are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and faculties, concentrating on those where research involving humans occurs. In addition, the Board has representation from the community external to Ontario Tech.
