The Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans is a joint policy of Canada’s three federal research agencies (relating to Health, Natural Sciences and Engineering and Social Sciences and Humanities). This is the 2nd edition (dated 2014) which now includes a chapter on “Research Involving the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples of Canada”. Chapter 9 is intended to provide a framework for the ethical conduct of research involving Indigenous peoples. Although it sounds dry, it is actually a pretty interesting read.
The purpose of this policy framework guide is to build capacity and achieve change within the education system by way of goals and strategies that will support achievement for all learners. This document is put out by the Saskatchewan government to address the educational needs of the First Nations and Metis population. The goal is to work with First Nations people to create a platform that all students can be successful. It is the government’s goal to re frame education in the 21st century where all students feel their needs are reflected. This policy addresses many of the historical issues in Saskatchewan as well as the economic, demographic and moral issues.
