Public Comments on the Revised Draft 2nd Edition of the TCPS (December 2009)

In December 2009, the Interagency Advisory Panel on Research Ethics released a revised version of the draft 2nd edition of the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS) to the public for comment. Chapter 9, “Research Involving Aboriginal Peoples in Canada,” was released in November 2009, in advance of the rest of the Policy, in light of the substantial changes made to this chapter and in response to requests made by a number of individuals and groups in the Aboriginal community and the research community at large.

Written comments were accepted until March 1, 2010, the majority of which are presented below.  As promised in the invitation, all comments on the revised draft 2nd edition of the TCPS have been posted unless the contributor has indicated otherwise.  Comments are posted in the language in which they were received.

The Panel is preparing a final draft based on these comments and in April 2010, the Panel expects to submit a final revision to CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC for their consideration and decision/approval.
