Human Ethics


  1. Health Researchers should take note that there are changing guidelines for health researchers as of January 1, 2022. While many processes will remain the same until the direct application system is available through RITHIM (Research Improvements through Harmonization in Manitoba) later in the year, there are some changing expectations and legal frameworks being implemented. Please contact the Ethics Program Officer at for the summary document.
  2. Researchers that are planning to engage in research activities on campus need to get guidance and approval through University processes prior to applying to Ethics. Approvals should be included with the ethics application. Please be in touch with the Ethics Program Officer for support.
