Dedicated to expanding wellbeing by building on strengths of Indigenous peoples

Welcome and thank you for taking an interest in the centre and our work.

At the Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement (CIRCLE), previously Centre for Aboriginal Health Research (CAHR), we are dedicated to expanding well-being by building on strengths of Indigenous peoples, and welcome you to join us in sharing ideas, resources, and projects.

We respectfully acknowledge the history, customs and culture of the Lekwungen and WSÁNEC Nations on whose traditional lands our centre is housed.

Through engagement with stakeholders in British Columbia, across Canada, and internationally, the centre seeks to promote, facilitate and lead relevant and ethical research that improves Indigenous peoples' wellbeing.
