NCTR and SSHRC partner to launch new funding for Indigenous-led research

Reconciliation Network will deliver national research funding in response to Call to Action 65

Following a partnership agreement announced on February 1 of this year, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) will invest $6 million to support Indigenous-led research across Canada. This collaboration with the National Centre for Truth and Reconcilliation (NCTR) responds to Call to Action 65, by establishing the Reconciliation Network to advance collective understanding of reconciliation.

“While we still have a very long way to go, the investment from SSHRC for this national research program allows the NCTR to engage with survivors and community to preserve more of our truth as the centre of excellence in this subject area,” explains Eugene Arcand of the NCTR Survivors Circle. “This mutually beneficial relationship will ensure that this work is survivor/Indigenous-led, centered in community, and respects intellectual property rights of the survivors.”
