What makes Ontario and Canada an attractive destination for global clinical trials? The answers can be found in a new Clinical Trials Ontario brochure called This is the Place for Global Clinical Trials.
The brochure cites five key reasons for choosing Ontario and Canada for global clinical trials, including world-class research, established clinical trials networks and an efficient regulatory process. Canada’s centrally-managed public health care system and diverse population are also highlighted.
There’s also a description of the new CTO Streamlined Research Ethics Review System, which will enable any single ‘CTO Qualified’ Research Ethics Board (REB) in Ontario to provide ethics review and oversight on behalf of multiple institutions participating in the same clinical trial.
The new system will improve the speed and reduce the costs of conducting these trials, while maintaining the highest ethical standards.
