We are committed to the highest standard of research ethics and accountability between Indigenous peoples and settlers in Canada.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Calls to Action usher in a new era of relationship-building and collaboration. As citizens, scholars, educators, and allies, we understand it to be our responsibility to learn how to build respectful, reciprocal, ethical, and sustainable research relationships with Indigenous colleagues and partnering communities.
We recognize that the incorporation of Indigenous knowledges and values at every stage of the research process has revolutionized the ways in which ethical research is being reconceptualized, re-defined, re-articulated, regulated, and operationalized within academia.
Our aim is to create a safe space where diverse stakeholders can come together to think about, actively engage with, and work through thought-provoking research and data management issues.
