Research Ethics Board

Office of Research Ethics

The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group (ROHCG) REB oversees the ethical review and monitoring of research conducted at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and the Brockville Mental Health Centre, and its affiliated sites.

The ROHCG REB mandate ensures all human research conducted at our sites, or affiliate sites, meets the current scientific, regulatory and ethical standards, and Good Clinical Practice for the protection of human research participants. We are guided by three core principles, as outlined in the Tri-Council Policy Statement 2:

Respect for Persons  •  Concern for Welfare  •  Justice
