Indigenous Community Research Partnerships: Module 2

Welcome to Module 2: Key Guiding Documents

Welcome to Module 2 of 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.

Module 2 guides you to examine the link between strength and continuity in societies to health and wellness, and introduces you to some key guiding documents: the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report.

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