First Nations-, Inuit- and Métis-governed research and data systems

Three priorities were identified through an engagement approach co-created with First Nations, Inuit and Métis Elders, governments and Advisors; National Indigenous Organizations; and other partners, including knowledge holders, families, cancer survivors and community leaders. The approach was grounded in reconciliation and was both distinctions-based and Peoples-specific.

This priority focuses on First Nations-, Inuit-, or Métis governed research and data systems. Content for this priority will be coming in summer 2022.
