On Tuesday, Mar. 17, the University of New Brunswick’s Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (MWC) is proud to host the second Annual Building Research Capacity with Indigenous Communities Workshop sponsored by The Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Development Integrated Research Program (AAEDIRP) and developed in partnership with the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (MWC) and UNB’s faculty of education.

This years workshop will take place at the St. Mary’s First Nation Cultural Centre, 45 Dedam St., St. Mary’s First Nation from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is open to all members of the public.

This workshop will allow First Nations and other Aboriginal peoples, university-based researchers and students, policy-makers and others with an opportunity to engage in discussion about the ethics of building research relationships between indigenous communities and researchers on the basis of mutual respect and understanding.

These workshops arose out of the need for researchers, students, policy-makers and indigenous community members to meet, discuss, and understand how to participate in research and knowledge exchange in a way that builds lasting relationships.  They are also designed to foster an interest among students in continuing their educations and, ultimately, participating in indigenous community-based research.
