For Participants

Clinical trial participants make medical progress a reality.

Clinical trials play a crucial role in advancing medical knowledge, and improving health and the quality of care received by Ontarians, Canadians and people worldwide. Successful clinical trials lead to new and improved treatments, cutting-edge approaches and novel disease-prevention strategies.

Ontario is renowned for outstanding ethical clinical research that makes participant safety an utmost priority.

Participant engagement is an essential pillar of Clinical Trials Ontario’s (CTO’s) programming.

CTO is working to streamline the research ethics review process so that Ontario’s world-class researchers and clinicians can continue to advance medical knowledge while meeting the highest ethical standards for participant safety.
