CIHR is committed to promoting health research that meets the highest standards of excellence and ethics. We support the work of researchers on existing and emerging ethical issues; and foster the discussion of ethical issues and the application of ethical principles to health research.

Along with the Interagency Secretariat on the Responsible Conduct of Research, CIHR also provides health researchers with the policies and guidelines needed to conduct ethical health research, while ensuring compliance with research integrity rules through rigorous accountability processes.

The CIHR ethics action plan highlights how we will ensure that Canada’s health research continues to meet the highest internal standards of ethics.
