Indigenous Peoples



Some of the research undertaken with data available through the CRDCN is related to Indigenous Peoples. This section was developed to help you find relevant news, publications, and videos.



Indigenous Policy Research

The report summarizing the discussion during the policy research workshop on Indigenous issues that the Network held last May in Ottawa is now available. This workshop culminated a two-year partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to support policy relevant research using data from the 2012 cycle of the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS). The workshop gathered approximately 65 invitees to discuss the results of these research projects focusing on Indigenous education, employment, and health, as well as the state of the data landscape relative to Indigenous Peoples in Canada. “Ethics,” “respect,” “collaboration,” “synergy,” and “strength” capture the main message from the workshop. Happy reading!

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.

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Every year on August 9, the world celebrates Indigenous Peoples under the aegis of the UN. This year is devoted to the right to education. Many researchers use our data to better understand the situation of First Nations in Canada, and offer insightful recommendations. To mark this day, we invite you to read the publications that ensue, including about the important role that education plays.
