Local Communities and Organizations

“Partnerships and collaborations with Indigenous communities have been an essential asset in the development of Indigenous-focused academic programs and research. Given Queen’s historical connection to Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory, the university must work to strengthen connections with local Indigenous communities. Strong relationships with local Indigenous communities will ensure that there is frequent consultation regarding Indigenous-focused policy development, academic programming, and research.” - TRC Task Force Report pg.11
