Research Ethics


 Research Ethics Board


​The Research Ethics Board (REB) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) reviews research involving human participants, conducted under CAMH's auspices, to ensure that it meets the highest ethical and scientific standards. 

The REB has a diverse and experienced membership that includes scientists, clinicians, community members and those with specialized knowledge of law and ethics. The REB meets the requirements of the Tri Council Policy Statement and the International Committee on Harmonization of Good Clinical Practice. The Research Ethics Office provides support to the REB, ensures that initial and continuing review of human research is undertaken and provides educational programs for the research community.


For information on submitting protocols for review, see our Protocol Forms & Guidelines section.
