Reconciling Ethical Research with Metis, Inuit, & First Nations People

July 7, 2016 — 

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management looks forward to welcoming students, staff, and community members to a lecture given by our visiting scholar, Dr. Lynn Lavallée, entitled Reconciling Ethical Research with Métis, Inuit, and First Nations People.

Date:                     Thursday, July 14
Time:                     3:00-4:30 p.m.
Location:              136 Frank Kennedy Centre, University of Manitoba

From the perspective of an Indigenous researcher (Anishinaabe Métis) and the chair of the Research Eth­ics Board at Ryerson University, Dr. Lynn Lavallée, will share insights into Chapter 9 of the Tri-Council Policy Statement (TCPS). The TCPS is the federal guidelines for research being done with people and Chapter 9 focuses specifically on research with First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Lynn will present the ethical requirements of research with Indigenous peoples of Canada and some of the synergies, challenges and tensions she has witnessed between community and researchers. Some of the issues being discussed can be applicable to delivering of programs with Indigenous peoples, so the presentation will be of interest to non-researchers. In addition, the discussion will be valuable for Indigenous peoples who are approached by researchers.

This lecture is sponsored by the Division of Extended Education’s Summer Session Visiting Scholars Program and the Health, Leisure, and Human Performance Research Institute.
