Plan your study

On the ethics committee's website you will find the most current information on submitting projects to the different committees for review. Submission guidelines, submission dates, billing and follow up information is also available.

Steps to be followed when planning to submit a project:

Project Review

There are four kinds of reviews to which all research projects are submitted.

  1. Scientific Review

  2. Ethics Review

  3. Administrative and institutional propriety evaluation

Once all three evaluations have been done, your project can be approved by the person formally mandated for the CIUSSS in Center-Sud-de-l'Île-de-Montréal. It is only after your project has been approved by the formally mandated person that you are authorized to start your research project.
