Capilano University is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in research involving human participants.

The CapU Research Ethics Board (REB) supports this goal by educating the CapU community and by ensuring that research associated with CapU complies with the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2, 2022).

This website contains information on the CapU REB review process, application forms, guidelines, and resources intended to support researchers, such as example consent forms.

The CapU REB Chair and/or Research Ethics Officer are also happy to provide project-specific support and information sessions for groups of faculty and/or students. If you have questions, and/or if you would like the REB to provide an information session for your class or program, please do not hesitate to contact the REB at reb@capilanou.ca.

The CapU REB is a partner in Research Ethics BC, a consortium of REBs that facilitate harmonized ethical review among partner institutions. Harmonized review streamlines the ethics review and approval process, allowing for submission of a single ethics application across all partner institutions. 

If your project requires approval of multiple REBs in BC, and these REBs are members of Research Ethics BC, please see visit Research Ethics BC for information on how to apply for harmonized review.
