Participating Sites

In order to use CTO Stream (either to submit ethics applications or to review ethics applications as a REB of Record), a site must have a Participation Agreement in place with CTO.

A site can decide to join CTO first as a participating research site, and their REB (if there is one) may elect to undergo Qualification at a later time should they wish. A site does not need to have a local REB in order to sign on as a participating site.

The Participation Agreement provides the framework for allowing sites to delegate ethical review and oversight for research conducted under its auspices, to a CTO Qualified board. This delegation occurs on a study-by-study basis, meaning that a site can choose whether to use CTO Stream for each individual study.

If you have questions about the Participation Agreement, please contact the CTO Help Desk at streamline@ctontario.ca. The CTO Participation Agreement can be found on the Tools and Resources Page.

CTO Participating Sites

*Institutional Requirements and Administration Forms – Documented Institutional Ethics Requirements (DIER) and Streamlined Research Ethics Review System (SRERS) Administration Forms

If you are planning to submit an application through CTO Stream, you will need the current SRERS (Streamlined Research Ethics Review System) Administration form and, if applicable, Documented Institutional Ethics Requirements (DIER) form before you begin working on your initial application.

• Some institutions have policies that impact research ethics review and must be addressed within the Centre Initial Application and/or the Site-specific consent form. These will be documented on the DIER form. If applicable, please ensure that these requirements are reflected within the Centre application/consent form.

• The SRERS Administration form contains details about a site’s research administration processes, the name and contact information for the Primary and/or Secondary Institution Representative (required for initial application) and lists collaborators who must have access to the applications in CTO Stream.

Below is the current list of Ontario sites that can use CTO Stream.
