Office of Research Ethics  The Office of Human Research Ethics offers administrative support to the Carleton University’s Research Ethics Boards (CUREB), works with researchers to ensure their research projects respect and comply with all applicable policies and guidelines, including those of the Tri-Councils (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC), specifically the Tri-Council Policy Statement on the Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans.

On behalf of the REBs, the office manages the protocol lifecycle, including protocol submission, approval and monitoring for the research involving human participants at the university and its affiliates. All research involving humans conducted by faculty, staff or students at Carleton University must be approved by a CUREB.

 Office of Animal Ethics and Biohazards Carleton University ensures full compliance with all guidelines for the care and use of animals in research published by the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC). The use of live vertebrates in scientific research and in teaching at Carleton University, is regulated by The Animals for Research Act of Ontario and the Guidelines of the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC).

Before any research involving animals begins, it must be approved by Carleton’s Animal Care Committee (ACC), to ensure compliance with CCAC guidelines, including the three major principles of reduction, refinement, and replacement, collectively referred to as the Three Rs.
