  Institutions > Research Protocols
  By "institutions" we generally refer to structures and rules that make up the forest management system of a given jurisdiction -- also called "institutional arrangements". While people also often use "institutions" to mean "organizations", that is not the primary meaning intended here.

  Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans
  "The people of Canada, through Acts of Parliament have created and funded the Medical Research Council, National Science and Engineering Research Council and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council to promote, assist and undertake research in the domains indicated by their names. In discharging our mandates, the Agencies wish to promote research that is conducted according to the highest ethical standards. The Agencies have therefore adopted this Policy as our standard of ethical conduct for research involving human subjects. As a condition of funding, we require, as a minimum, that researchers and their institutions apply the ethical principles and the articles of this Policy." (from the Mandate of the Statement)
