IRB Services – Canada

In 2014, Chesapeake IRB acquired IRB Services, the only Canadian-based IRB to earn AAHRPP accreditation. IRB Services has the most extensive site reach in Canada and is led by industry-trained senior management professionals. It was founded in 1993 and is headquartered just outside Toronto with a second office in Montreal.

IRB Services operates as a wholly owned subsidiary and has boards in Ontario and Quebec that handle Canada-specific research. We know Canadian researchers want trusted Canadian reviews, so we keep that promise by delivering boards made up completely of Canadian members.

Our Canadian boards offer:

  • Both native French and English speakers
  • 100% Canadian membership
  • Strong understanding of both Health Canada and US FDA regulations
  • Single submission for cross-border Canadian and US studies
