Health Canada Clinical Trial Applications (CTAs), ethics submission, contract review, and administrative approvals can often be undertaken simultaneously. Check with your local institution’s research administration for more information.

The following links are provided to assist in obtaining the approvals needed to start your research project at Providence Health Care.

You must also obtain organizational approval to conduct your research study. This is completed through the REB as well.
