To proceed with the study (Phase 1: Provincial Survey), it had to be approved by numerous research ethics boards (REBs). Because the research team consists of faculty from Wilfrid Laurier University and McGill University, the REBs at these schools were the first to approve the study. These approvals address all aspects of Phase 1: Provincial Survey and mean that interested LGBTQ2S+ students from any university in Ontario can choose to participate in the study at any time, even if their school’s REB board has not yet approved the study or if such approval was not necessary. Approvals from other university’s REBs and/or departments enable staff at these schools to help promote the study on their campuses. University staff at these schools cannot promote the survey until their REBs approve the study.
