Emily Carr University Research Ethics Board
Emily Carr University promotes a high standard of ethics and integrity in research and scholarship. All university-affiliated research and scholarship involving human participants requires review and approval of the University’s Research Ethics Board.
NEWS! - The ECU-REB is presenting "'Re-Making' Research Ethics Strategies: the Creative Research Enterprise of Emily Carr University" in the Programatic Poster Session at the Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards on April 25 - 27. CARREB_ECUREB_Abstract2013.pdf
The ECU-REB is an independent committee that is charged by the President with the responsibility of ensuring the University’s research adheres to the highest standard of conduct in research involving human participation.
The ECU-REB acts in compliance with the Second Edition of the Tri-Council Policy Statement on Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans 2010 (TCPS 2) and the Tri-Agency Framework: Responsible Conduct of Research (The Framework).
To comply with these standards, all Emily Carr University Researchers who embark on human participant research will complete the TCPS2:CORE (Course on Research Ethics) as part of the ECU-REB approval process.
All course-based or project-based research that involves the participation of humans requires REB review and approval prior to its commencement. Non-compliance with the University’s procedures regarding research that involves humans could result in withdrawal of funding or other disciplinary action.
