The TCPS2 requires that an Annual Update Form, available in Word format and PDF format, be submitted to the ICEHR at email@example.com. Whether you plan to continue the project in subsequent years, you need to request renewal of your ethics clearance including a brief summary on the progress of the project in the space provided, or if at some juncture the course no longer requires contact with human participants, or is terminated, you need to request to close and provide a brief final report in the space provided.
Proposals are assigned file numbers in the order in which they are received. Do not submit your application to a committee member or the Chair since this will delay the assignment of a file number, and thereby, also the processing of your application.
Researchers are required to submit applications to the committee for ethics review at least four weeks before they intend to begin the research. Please be aware that incomplete or ethically controversial proposals, may take longer than four weeks to receive final approval. Also, please be advised that to accommodate vacations or other absences the review process could take up to 6 weeks.
Please note: To allow adequate time to complete ethics reviews before the December holiday period, applications will be accepted each year up until the cut-off date of November 30th. Applications received after that date will be assigned for review in January.
