The Panel on Research Ethics is responsible for addressing the evolving needs of Canada's three federal research agencies, CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC, in promoting the ethics of research involving humans. The Panel develops, interprets, and implements the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS).

The Canadian Association of Research Ethics Boards is a source of resources and training on topics of concern relating to research ethics.

Research CA$H (Capacity, Access, and Strength Here) is an online grant-writing workshop presented in collaboration between Aurora Research Institute and Hotıì ts’eeda. This workshop is presented in phases that will guide participants through the development of a high-quality, submission-ready research funding proposal to one of the Tri-Council agencies (SSHRC, CIHR, and NSERC). Our purpose is to build Northern research capacity and increase access to federal research funding programs for NWT researchers and communities.
