Welcome to the Ethics in Indigenous Research Workshop Website

The Ethics in Indigenous Research Workshop was held on 16 March 2018 at the Native Canadian Centre, Toronto, Ontario. The workshop was created as an opportunity for researchers at every stage in their career to participate in a day-long conversation about the processes of ethical research engagement with Indigenous individuals and communities. We sincerely hope that the day’s event took a step towards productive and valuable long-term commitments to similar exchanges and, ultimately, transformative change.
