HIPC Applications That Received Conditional Approval in 2021

For all applications that received conditional approval from the HIPC committee prior to January 1, 2022, applicants have one year from the date of the conditional approval to resubmit to  HIPC for review. If the requested information is not submitted within this time period a new application will need to be submitted to  PHRPC. Please email the pending documents and responses to conditional approval letter to HIPC@gov.mb.ca for review and full approval.


Amendments to Research Projects Approved by the HIPC or PHRPC:

Any proposed changes to a research project that was approved by the HIPC or PHRPC must be reported to PHRPC for review and approval in advance of its implementation. Please complete a Protocol Amendment Form and email one (1) signed copy to PHRPC@researchmb.ca.


New Research Applications

Submit all PHRPC applications and supporting material in .zip format to PHRPC@researchmb.ca.

Please review the following page to determine if your project needs to be reviewed by PHRPC: Does My Project Require PHRPC Review?.

Once the Provincial Research Administration System (PRAS) launches later in 2022, all Manitoba based human health research ethics, privacy, and impact review applications and amendments/post-approval processes will be submitted, processed, reviewed, and communicated through the online system. Additional information will be provided when the system is closer to launch. Visit our website page for updates: PRAS.
