Institutional Feasibility

The Feasibility Committee

The mandate of the Feasibility Committee is to ensure that each installation of the CIUSSS-CODIM involved in a study is aware of the project and support research regarding the available material and human resources on site. This decision should be based on the resources available for the conduct of the study.

When submitting a project to the WCMH REB, the Principal Investigator must also submit an electronic copy to the Feasibility Committee:

email address -

The Feasibility Form must be completed for all studies and must be submitted at the same time as the Application package

In addition, if this is a study that includes the administration of pharmaceuticals, a hard copy should be submitted to the Committee on Institutional Convenience.

Researcher-Initiated Feasibility 

We always suggest that researchers take the first steps with the departments in which the research will take place to discuss the resources needed to achieve the objectives of the study. When this "Researcher-Initiated Feasibility" process is adopted, the researcher can obtain a support letter directly from the department head, which can shorten the waiting time for a final letter of approval from the committee.
