  • We, as Indigenous and non-Indigenous members, work with a consciousness of Canada’s colonial history, sensitivity to Indigenous methodologies, and honouring of Indigenous voices.
  • As researchers and citizens we collaborate with local, regional and international Indigenous organizations, scholars, and lawyers to collectively work to promote Indigenous rights and social justice.
