NEW! – The Board of our CIUSSS has just approved the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal Research Ethics Board (September 2021). These SOPs were developed based on the Canadian REB SOPs by the Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards (CAREB) in 2014, which were then further adapted by CATALIS for the Quebec context in 2019.


These SOPs are aimed to all clinical researchers of the Jewish General Hospital and researchers within the community sector having research privileges at the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.

Access to the document:  SOPs 2021.


** SOP Webinars  “Introducing Research Ethics Board (REB) Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Investigators and Research Team Members” is the title of 2 webinars offered to investigators and research team members. The presenter is Linda Furlini, Ph.D. These webinars will introduce you to the SOPs that all REB members are obliged to follow. These SOPs impact not only on REB members but, you as investigators and research team members, as well.
