Welcome to the home for the new Indigenous research initiatives from the Vice President & Provost office at the University of Toronto. It is staffed by the Indigenous Research Circle, which provides culturally safe support, guidance, inclusion and advice to OVPRI, and is led by Dr. Suzanne L Stewart, the Director of Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health.
Three new specific initiatives to advance Indigenous research are underway. Indigenous academic community participation is at the heart of the development and implementation of new and revised programs, policies, and supports that efficiently and meaningfully builds on existing Indigenous research strengths and addresses current challenges.
