Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council
To remain eligible to receive Tri-Agency funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the University of Guelph must ensure all applicable certifications for the use of animals, human participants, etc. in research are valid prior to enabling access to funding.
In addition, the Tri-Agencies require researchers to disclose any new or emerging certification requirements to ensure continued access to funding. These certification requirements may not have been disclosed at the time of application or in prior years of the project.
If you have changed, or you anticipate changing, the scope or methodology of your research such that you will require new/incremental certifications for human participants/tissues/fluids/data, live animals, biohazards, or radiation, please inform the Office of Research Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. Please refer to your project’s account number in your email.
Failure to notify the Office of Research Services of changes in scope/methodology requiring new or emerging certifications is considered a breach of the University of Guelph’s Responsible Conduct of Research Policy and Procedures.
