Welcome to the Humber Research Ethics Board Application System

The Humber Research Ethics Board (REB) is responsible for reviewing all research conducted by Humber employees and all research conducted at Humber that involves human subjects. We work with researchers to ensure that the privacy and safety of all subjects is maintained.

If you are using one or more human participants in your research activities under the auspices of Humber or in any way related to Humber employees or students, you need to apply to the REB for ethics approval.  All research involving human participants carried out by an individual connected with Humber must be reviewed and approved by the Humber REB before any research activities can begin.

There are other ethical concerns regarding research with animals, plants, and/or biohazard materials. Please contact the Humber Applied Research & Innovation Office ( if you are contemplating these types of research.
