• Why do we need standards for human research?

  • Why do we need national standards for human research?

Given the fundamental and societal importance of human research, it must be conducted ethically, scientifically, and in a manner that safeguards the rights and welfare of research participants.

Adherence to human research standards ensures that the rights and welfare of research participants are safeguarded, and that human research is conducted in an environment that promotes efficiencies, mitigates risks, and produces reliable, verifiable, and credible data.

Standards promote uniform conduct and oversight of human research from one organization to another, and from one province to another – breaking down barriers to harmonization, collaboration, and growth of this industry sector within Canada and globally.
