Research Events

Recommendations 18, 19 and 20 of the Queen's TRC Task Force report focus on the importance and challenges of conducting research with and for Indigenous peoples and communities.

The purpose of our research events are twofold. First of all to raise awareness of the types of research taking place with Indigenous peoples and communities and then also, to explore challenges and potential remedies for addressing them.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2020 events. Please check back here for details on the 2021 events.
