Does Quorum review research in Canada?
Yes. Quorum Review IRB maintains an ethics review board (referred to as the “North American” Board) and serves as a both a duly convened research ethics board (REB) as well as a central institutional review board (IRB). The North American Board complies with Canadian and U.S. requirements and meets every Wednesday and Friday to review U.S. and Canadian studies. Quorum accepts both privately and publicly funded research. Quorum is subject to the same provincial restrictions that apply to other central REBs in Canada. Therefore, Quorum does not provide review in Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan. In Quebec, Quorum reviews only studies involving adult participants.
