Human Research Ethics Board (HREB) forms

The Research Office is transitioning to our online database management system, ROMEO, as of September 1, 2019.  Please use ROMEO to apply for HREB approval.

Tutorials on how to apply can be found here:   Information on how to register can be found here:

The HREB would like to stress that if students submit an above minimal risk ethics protocol in the middle of their course, they may not get approval in time to complete their research before their course ends.

Not sure if your research is minimal risk? Fill out the minimal risk checklist and contact the ethics officer right away.

Research that is deemed 'Above minimal risk' must be reviewed at the board level and there are often major discussions and deliberations before a final version is approved. Additionally, if your research requires approval from a secondary source that has their own ethics board (health authorities, community services), this will delay your approval even more; it is unavoidable and it is the nature of that type of research.

Please email completed forms to the Research office at

"(Research has) been a really sweet way to optimize my time at school. Looking back, I’m so grateful that I did this. It has truly been a highlight to work under Shelley (Canning). She has been a wonderful mentor and has impacted me and my nursing practice immensely."
