Research Ethics Board (REB)

The College of New Caledonia (CNC) is committed to ensure that the policies and practices governing the ethical conduct of research established by the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans are followed.

All research involving human subjects conducted at, or under the auspices of, CNC follows Tri-Council guidelines and requires ethics review and approval by the CNC Research Ethics Board (REB). This includes work by CNC faculty, staff, students and researchers external to the College who intend to conduct research at CNC.

The process of evaluating research ethics applications is managed by the CNC Research Ethics Board (REB).

We expect researchers to be familiar with the Tri-Council guidelines on research ethics. All forms such as application form, sample consent form, and a consent checklist are available on this site.
