Special Call, Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation, Connection Grants

Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation—Connection Grants support interdisciplinary events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives to contribute to the CRCC-prioritized national dialogue. These events and activities represent opportunities to engage and exchange knowledge on successful ways of conducting Indigenous research that are transformative and contribute to reconciliation, including holistic, interdisciplinary and distinctions-based approaches. Duration of grant is 6 months, with the possibility of a 6 months extension.

This funding opportunity is guided by themes that have emerged from ongoing engagement with First Nations, Métis and Inuit partners and the federal research funding agencies (SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR).

Key themes include:

  • Supporting Indigenous Talent and Research Careers
  • Engaging Indigenous Knowledge
  • Mobilize Knowledge and Partnerships for Reconciliation
