BioéthiqueOnline published from 2012-2017. In 2018, it was renamed the Canadian Journal of Bioethics / Revue canadienne de bioéthique. BO remains the social media arm of the journal (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn).

The journal is a collaborative endeavour between the Bioethics Program and the Bioethics Student Association (AÉBiUM) at the School of Public Health of the Université de Montréal; it uses a completely online platform to bring together scholarly and professional resources to help foster the development of a robust, collaborative and bilingual bioethics community in Montreal and across Quebec, but also more generally in Canada and internationally.

The aim of the journal is to provide a space for the publication of high quality and thought provoking bioethics scholarship of diverse forms (e.g., articles, commentaries, book reviews, editorials, debate pieces, case studies) and from across the full range of specialties in the field (e.g., clinical ethics, research ethics, public health ethics, technology ethics, professional ethics). The journal welcomes submissions that might not otherwise be publishable in US or European bioethics journals because of the language (e.g., in French), jurisdictional context (e.g., specific national issues or cases), form or subject matter (e.g., using diverse theoretical frameworks or applying novel methods).
