Research Ethics

Welcome to the Centennial College Research Ethics Board Home Page
The policies and practices governing the ethical conduct of research in Canada are established by the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (

Centennial College is legally and morally committed to ensure that research activities involving humans conducted in its name meet all ethical standards and policies accepted by the Tri-Council. All research involving human subjects conducted at, or under the auspices of, Centennial College follows Tri-Council guidelines and requires ethics review and approval by the Centennial College Research Ethics Board (REB) prior to the study starting. This includes work by Centennial faculty, staff and students and researchers external to the College who intend to conduct research at Centennial.

We expect researchers to be familiar with the Tricouncil 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.

If you have any questions regarding research ethics at Centennial College or need assistance, please contact or the Co-Chairs, Sowmya Kishore at and Eric Schwenger at
