The Research Ethics Boards (REB) in the province of Saskatchewan have a policy of full reciprocity.  This means that if your application has been approved by the REB of the University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina, or Saskatchewan Health Authority, that approval will be accepted by both of those other two institutions without the need for additional REB review, provided the protocol is identical in its content and activities.

Please note: there are criteria for determining which REB is the one that you must seek approval from (it is not necessarily your home institution), so before you begin preparing your REB application, please check in with the staff at your local REB office for guidance.


For all other institution's approvals, there are criteria for determining if University of Saskatchewan ethics approval is required. Please contact the ethics office to assist in making the assessment.
