Research Ethics Board (REB)

The College of New Caledonia is accountable to ensure that the policies and practices governing the ethical conduct of research in Canada that are established by the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans are followed. This entire process is managed by the Research Ethics Board (REB).

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

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