Research Ethics Board (REB)

*New Researcher Requirements for Research Ethics submission

The Red River College Research Ethics Board (REB) is currently in the process of updating its processes to be more in line with the most recent update of the Tri Council Policy Statement (TCPS-2, 2018) and the processes currently in practice at other post-secondary institutions in Manitoba and across the country.

In line with this policy, starting October 1, 2020, the lead research team member(s) or principal investigator(s) on a REB application submission will be required to submit their TCPS-2 Core Tutorial certificate as a part of their application. After October 1, 2020, applications will not be reviewed until proof of tutorial completion is submitted.

The TCPS-2 Core Tutorial is available at:

Researchers will need to create an account in the CORE tutorial system, Red River College should be listed in the dropdown menu of options. If it does not appear, you can scroll to the bottom and there is an option to select “other” in the menu.

The tutorial takes on average 3 hours to complete depending on how many activities you explore within the system. The tutorial will walk researchers through the core principles of the Tri Council Policy Statement. The statement is posted online and can be downloaded in a PDF form from Completion of the tutorial will provide you with a PDF certificate to save for your records. The tutorial only needs to be completed once and has no expiry. If you have completed the tutorial since it began in 2011, your certificate will be accepted.
