About us

The centre is a University of Victoria research centre dedicated to promoting and engaging in research in partnership with Indigenous peoples to improve their well-being.

We acknowledge with respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples on whose traditional territory the centre stands and whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

Since May 2008 we have provided a supportive environment for students, researchers and communities to engage respectfully in research activities that aim to address the urgent disparities experienced by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.

Through engaging with stakeholders in British Columbia, across Canada and internationally, we seek to assume an active advocacy role in promoting relevant and ethical research that seeks to improve Indigenous peoples’ well-being.

For any other questions, or concerns, please contact us.
