Launching of Toolbox of Principles for Research in Indigenous Contexts: Ethics, Respect, Equity, Reciprocity, Cooperation and Culture

Val-d’Or, September 24, 2014 – On the occasion of the 3rd Seminar on the Ethics of Research with Aboriginal Peoples, the First Nations of Québec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission (FNQLHSSC), the Centre de recherche en droit public of the Université de Montréal (CRDP), the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT), the Assembly of First Nations of Québec and Labrador (AFNQL) with a contribution from the DIALOG Network, are launching today the Toolbox of Principles for Research in Indigenous Contexts: Ethics, Respect, Equity, Reciprocity, Cooperation and Culture, under the co-editorship of Nancy Gros-Louis McHugh (FNQLHSSC), Karine Gentelet (UdeM) and Suzy Basile (UQAT).

This one-of-a-kind publication is intended for First Nations and Inuit communities’ decision-makers, researchers and students wishing to further their knowledge in research in an Aboriginal context. The purpose of the Toolbox is to aggregate existing tools and make them available to all (evaluation questionnaires, consent forms, reflections on ethics and collaboration, explanatory videos, etc.) that have proven useful in the development of ethical, respectful, equitable and reciprocal collaborative research.

French and English versions of the Toolbox will be available very soon on the website of the First Nations of Québec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission, at www.cssspnql.com.
