Strengthening Indigenous Research Capacity Strategic Plan

The Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) recently released Setting new directions to support Indigenous research and research training in Canada: Strategic Plan 2019-2022

The federal research granting agencies, CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC, reiterate their commitment to sustained engagement and a coordinated approach with Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations in moving forward with the implementation of the strategy.

The granting agencies are preparing for the implementation of the Strategic Plan, including through a call for Expressions of Interest for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples to participate in the Reference Group for the Appropriate Review of Indigenous Research, which will provide guidance to all three federal granting agencies on culturally appropriate review approaches and practices for research conducted by and with Inuit, Métis and First Nations Peoples. The instructions on how to submit one’s candidacy are outlined in the Expression of Interest: the deadline is March 13, 2020
