VIU is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in research involving human participants. The VIU Research Ethics Board (REB) supports this goal by educating the VIU community and by ensuring that research conducted under the aegis of VIU complies with the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS 2014).

This website is intended to provide information on VIU's ethical review process. The Research Ethics Officer and REB Chair can also provide project-specific guidance. If you have questions, and/or if you would like the REB to provide an information session (e.g. for your class or program) please do not hesitate to contact the REB at or 250-740-6631.
