Research Integrity

Research, scholarly activity and innovation are central to the purpose and mission of the University and directly contribute to the advancement of health, culture, economic development and social development. The University, researchers, sponsors of research and our community partners recognize that research can best flourish in a climate of academic freedom. This climate relies on the integrity of university researchers and their compliance with the policies, practices and ethical standards governing research in Canada and abroad. The University is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in the conduct of research and to the ongoing education of its research community in matters of research integrity. Granting agencies in Canada and elsewhere require that such policies be established.
