CIET has been working with Aboriginal communities in Canada since 1995, trying to help Aboriginal researchers conduct studies and use the evidence for planning with little external assistance. We have collaborated with First Nations, Métis and Inuit organizations and band councils in the following initiatives:
Grants from the AK-NEAHR have
funded Aboriginal health researchers all over the country. A colloquium on ethics in Aboriginal research
was held in 2003 in partnership with the Alberta NEAHR. In 2012 the Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHRs) and the Aboriginal Health Research Networks Secretariat (AHRNetS) hosted a national colloquium on racism, cultural safety and Aboriginal peoples' health.
A special collection of articles on CIET's work with Aboriginal communities in Canada has been published in the Summer 2008 issue of Pimatisiwin: A Journal of Indigenous and Aboriginal Community Research.
In the course of this work we have partnered with major national First Nations, Métis and Inuit organizations, including Assembly of First Nations, Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, Métis National Council, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, and Native Women’s Association of Canada. We have worked with, or are currently linked to: Nechi Institute, Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN), Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay, Native Counselling Services of Alberta, Tlicho Community Services Board, The National Aboriginal Circle against Family Violence, Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Project, and First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada.
