BC Ethics Harmonization Initiative (BCEHI)

BCEHI is a collaboration among the provincial health authorities and BC's four major research universities, who collectively conduct more than 80 percent of the province's human subject ethics reviews. It aims to create efficient, coordinated, and high-quality processes that support and encourage multi-jurisdictional human health research. The goal is to make BC a more attractive environment for research activity. Please visit the BCEHI website for more information about this project. 

If you have a research study that requires approval at more than one BC institution or health authority, please contact your local REB before submitting an application.

A ‎PHSA-approved file transfer service is now available for anyone with VCH, PHC or PHSA email credentials

Visit the UBC Clinical Research Ethics Board (CREB) Advice and Online Presentations page for tips on submitting a clinical REB application.

For funding release prior to ethics approval, submit a request to UBC ORS. The form can be found under the financial forms tab.
