The Community Research Ethics Office (CREO) aims to strengthen and support community research by responding to the needs of community researchers to easily access an ethical support and review process.
Our purpose is to offer a supportive environment that encourages community researchers to participate and collaborate in a process of reflection that promotes awareness of ethical issues and maximizes ethical conduct of research.
CREO’s work aligns with the three core principles in the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS 2). CREO includes a fourth principle reflecting the impact research has on communities as well as individuals. Our four core principles are:
Respect for Persons
Concern for Welfare
Concern for Justice
Respect for Community
