Ottawa, ON (April 25, 2017)

In October 2016, the Panel on Research Ethics released proposed changes to TCPS 2 (2014) to the public for comment. Written comments were accepted until January 31, 2017. All comments received are posted online unless the contributor requested that they remain confidential. (Of the 72 comments received, 65 are posted.)

The Panel appreciates the thoughtful responses submitted by Canada’s research community.
