Communications & Memos

Upcoming Notes & Reminders from Human Research Ethics

  • COVID 19 Communications:

    • See REB Memo below sent out March 13, 2020
    • For COVID-19 information please see the following:
    • Please note, due to the fact the Office of Human Research Ethics (OHRE) and the REBs are prioritizing amendments to ongoing research projects, and expediting review of new projects related specifically to COVID-19, there may be a delay in the review and approval of other recently submitted applications beyond our documented review timelines.  Should this cause concern, please correspond with the appropriate Ethics Officer via WREM correspondence.
    • Since Lawson has encouraged the suspension of recruitment, please note the REB does not need to receive Reportable Event forms (i.e. FYI, Protocol Deviation, etc.) for these updates. 
  • General Communications:

  • If you are not currently receiving Memos that are sent out by the Human Research Ethics office but would like to, you can sign up HERE to join our mailing list. 
  • When our new forms have been launched in the WREM system there may be an Update message present at the top of your WREM application screen.  Please note that we recommend exporting a current copy of your application prior to updating your application as questions have been changed in our forms and the previously answered information may be missing. Please click on the "Print" button in the Action tiles to export a PDF copy of your application.
