Canadian Common CV
When applying for a grant -- federal, provincial, non-government or local -- one of the first steps is to complete a common CV.
The Canadian Common CV (CCV) allows researchers to enter their CV data once and output it in formats suitable for submissions to CCV network member organizations (i.e. CIHR). The CCV Network is a partnership of federal, provincial and non-governmental research granting agencies.Step one is to create an account on the CCV website. Once your account is set-up, under CV (located on the second line of the top menu) - select Generic and begin to input your data from your University CV. This will take some time to complete depending upon the length of your CV. If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact the Surgery Research & Graduate Office.
Animal User Trainer Course
All investigators and personnel involved in animal-based research must complete this course. The didactic component is delivered on-line and mandatory for all personnel to update themselves in the didactic core components of the training program once every five years. New personnel must complete the animal user training course (online) before they can begin their animal work. Established personnel who have completed the full course within the past five years may choose one of two education session options (see Education and Training under Office of Research Ethics & Compliance webpages through the University of Manitoba website).
Office of Research Ethics
All research projects involving humans conducted at, or under the auspices of the University of Manitoba, require prior ethics review and approval by a Research Ethics Board (REB). They meet every month except in July. Deadline is two-weeks prior to their meeting date (posted at their office location and online). It will be important to review both the Research Ethics Guidelines and Submission Requirements prior to starting your research project. The REB Office provides excellent educational resources to help researchers with the submission process including a Researchers Training Manual and an overview of Common Submission Pitfalls.

University Research Policy
All research projects involving animals conducted at, or under the auspices of the University of Manitoba must adhere to the policies and guidelines for proper care and handling of animals in research. The Protocol Management & Review Committee meets monthly except in July (meeting dates available online through their website). Deadline for submission of protocols is two-weeks prior to their meeting date. It will be important to review the Animal Care Overiew and Compliance Guidelines prior to starting your research project.
It is recommended that, for new research involving chronic animal models, investigators meet with veterinary staff to review anticipated procedures before submitting a protocol for approval:

Assistance for pediatric research projects is available through the Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba. This includes supporting basic science research, a clinical research unit and Biostatistical Consulting Service.
A framework for the responsible conduct of research has been established by NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR. This framework applies to all research that is conducted at the University of Manitoba, in order to remain eligible for Tri-Council funding. Included in this site is information regarding an online integrity course, iThenticate (a plagiarism detection software program); and a policy on responsible conduct in research.
Funding opportunities available to surgery investigators can be found through the University of Manitoba website:
