Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans

Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans

“The Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS or the Policy) is a
joint policy of Canada’s three federal research agencies – the Canadian Institutes of Health Research
(CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social
Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), or “the Agencies.”


This Policy expresses the Agencies’ continuing commitment to the people of Canada to promote the
ethical conduct of research involving humans. It has been informed, in part, by leading international
ethics norms, all of which may help, in some measure, to guide Canadian researchers, in Canada and
abroad, in the conduct of research involving humans.”
