Saint Paul University has adopted the Tri-Council Policy Statement (TCPS): Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans, which addresses the rules and principles that guide faculty, researchers, students and staff members. This is required regardless of whether the project is funded or not, whether it is carried out in Canada or abroad, or whether it is a collaborative project or not.

The Research Ethics Board sits from September to May. There are no meetings in June, July and August.
