Our reconciliation efforts with Indigenous people and communities start with learning about how research must change to reflect their rights and needs. We will seek guidance from Indigenous partners as well as several national and international reports, with a particular emphasis on the newly released In Plain Sight: Addressing Indigenous-specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care.
- Genuine and meaningful efforts to advance reconciliation with Indigenous People
Our plan includes these actions:
- Develop a research agenda that advances the evidence-based implementation of TRC, MMIWG, and In Plain Sight reports and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
- Create an inclusive, safe, and empowering environment for active and meaningful research collaborations with local sovereign First Nations, Indigenous organizations, and Indigenous scholars, and patients.
