The amount of time your review will take will depend upon the number of proposals to be reviewed. The review time may vary; however, the HREB strives to conduct reviews as expeditiously as possible.  Our goal is to review proposals within two weeks of receipt by members but it may take longer. Please be aware, however, that there are certain periods of the year, e.g., mid-terms, finals, and holidays, in which proposals cannot be reviewed within two weeks.
