Following a successful pilot in 2014, Carleton University launched the full fledged Institute on the Ethics of Research with Indigenous Peoples (CUIERIP) in June of 2015. We have wrapped up the Summer Institute for this year and it was a tremendous success. We are pleased to offer the next six-day intensive course from Sunday, June 4th to Friday, June 9th 2017, following feedback from participants. Developed for a diverse audience, including researchers and research ethics board members, First Nations, Inuit and Métis community members and researchers and representatives from governmental and non-governmental organizations, the CUIERIP offers an opportunity to share perspectives and learn best practices about engaging in research with Indigenous peoples.

Featuring speakers with expertise in research ethics, community engagement as well as research design and review, the program centres around a hands-on approach. Participants will work together in small groups using case studies to work through the ethical issues involved in community engagement plans and research agreements. Elders and research ethics experts will be on hand for consultation. A model ethics review body of academic and community reviewers will provide feedback and all participants will be invited to share their perspectives in closing circles.

Participation is limited to 45 applicants. Tuition for the entire six day program is $1000 excluding transportation and accommodation. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided daily. Several evening social activities will be offered. We are in the midst of planning for this year’s upcoming Summer Institute so please stay connected and visit our website frequently for updates.

A limited number of scholarships for this program are available. Please contact us for more information.
