Bruyère Research Institute

Renewing or Closing Your Project



Projects receive REB approval for one year only, and must be renewed every 12 months to ensure continued ethical approval. It is the responsibility of the researcher to ensure the project is renewed in a timely manner. If the project is not renewed, the REB may close the project, and a new application must be submitted if the project is to be continued.

For all renewals, please submit the most recently approved consent forms to ensure your renewal will be processed.


Projects may be closed once data collection is complete, and all remaining acknowledgements, amendments, and addendums have been submitted to the REB. It is advised that projects remain open until all data analysis has been completed.
