In carrying out Ethics in Research policies, Emily Carr University is guided and in compliance with the Tri-Council Policy Statement.

TCPS 2:CORE Tutorial

The online tutorial TCPS 2: CORE (Course on Research Ethics) is an introduction to the 2nd edition of the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS 2). TCPS 2:CORE consists of eight modules that reflect the content of TCPS 2. It is applicable to all researchers involved in human participant research, regardless of discipline or methodology. The purpose of TCPS 2: CORE is to provide an introduction to TCPS 2, primarily for researchers and, secondarily, for Research Ethics Board members. 

The certificate of completion for the tutorial is required of all University researchers conducting primary research with human participants, and recommended for all REB members. A copy of the certificate should be sent to the Emily Carr University Research Ethics Board - ethics@ecuad.ca. Annual renewal is required for all University researchers conducting primary research with human participants.
