Research Involving Aboriginal Peoples and Communities in Canada - Community Engagement Plan

 In support of a commitment made by Nipissing University in 2010, faculty, students and staff researchers may request support from the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives when their research involves Aboriginal peoples and communities. The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives may provide support, assistance and advice, where appropriate.

The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives requests that researchers engaging with Aboriginal peoples and communities:

  • Initiate dialogue with the OAI about the proposed research, including steps taken by the researcher to build relationships and their plans for engagement with Aboriginal peoples and/or communities.

  • Complete and sign “Research Involving Aboriginal Peoples and Communities in Canada, Community Engagement Plan” and submit one e-copy and two printed copies of this plan - together with evidence of formal community consent and (where the community wishes) an intellectual property agreement – to the OAI, allowing four weeks for review. OAI may request minor amendments or provide suggestions for strengthening engagement with the community or communities. Submit e-copy to communityengagementplans@nipissingu.ca       

  • ​Notify the OAI regarding modifications to the Community Engagement Plan and requests for renewal. Complete the “Research Involving Aboriginal Peoples and Communities in Canada, Community Engagement Plan,” indicating modification request on the form and submit supporting documentation.

       OAI will notify researchers via email once the Community Engagement Plan has been found satisfactory.

      Please contact communityengagementplans@nipissingu.ca with questions.
