Indigenous Community Research Partnerships: Introduction

Welcome to the Introduction to ICRP

Welcome to the Indigenous Community Research Partnerships (ICRP) online open education training resource. This resource is designed to assist researchers who are new to research in partnerships with Inuit, Métis and First Nations (“Indigenous”) communities, or who are researchers-in-training, to:

  • Operationalize required regulatory policy requirements and research directives;
  • Ensure equitable inclusion of Indigenous and Western-oriented knowledge in research systems;
  • And, in the case of Indigenous-specific enquiry, to privilege or give primacy to Indigenous ways of knowing and doing.

This introductory module provides a complete overview of the training and explains how and why the training was created.

We would like to hear from you! If you would like to share feedback about the training resource, contact
