The Research Ethics Board (REB) may delegate its responsibility for reviewing minimal risk, undergraduate student research to Departmental Review Committees, with agreement between the Department and the REB.

Please contact the REB if you would like to discuss entering into a Departmental Review Agreement with the REB.

Note: activities intended solely for pedagogical purposes do not constitute research as defined by the TCPS, and are therefore not subject to REB review.

The REB encourages departments to conduct their own ethical review of pedagogical activities within their programs.
