Knowledge synthesis funding opportunities

In support of its continued engagement and investment in Aboriginal research and talent, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) offers a Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity to support the production of knowledge syntheses and scoping reviews that will contribute to the use of synthesized evidence and best practices in decision-making and practice on Aboriginal issues. These grants will foster a deeper understanding of the current and historical, cultural, social and economic experiences of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. Grants are worth up to $25,000 and all synthesis reports must be completed by May 2017. The deadline to submit a proposal is September 13. Additional details and proposed research areas are available here.

National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

As part of its commitment to hold a national inquiry to address the high number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls annouced in December 2015, the Government of Canada has launched a pre-inquiry online survey to allow survivors, family members, loved ones of victims, front-line service providers and others the opportunity to provide input into who should conduct the inquiry, its timeframe, who should be heard as part of the inquiry process, and what issues should be considered. A discussion guide has been developed and is now available online. All details are available here.
