BSH Ethical Guidelines for Collaborating with Indigenous Peoples

In 2021, the UBC Balanced Supply of Housing created space for this living document to promote a collective understanding and application of Indigenous research ethics as they relate to research collaboration with urban Indigenous Peoples and partners in the major cities of British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec. It is intended to be a catalyst for (un)learning and discussion among researchers seeking to enhance their practice.

The document below, recommends learning through a process of self-reflection, moving outward to a greater recognition and appreciation of Indigenous protocols and research guidelines locally, in First Nations communities, as well as provincially and federally. The exploration closes with recommendations to inform future research plans in upholding the highest ethical standards when engaging in research collaboration with urban Indigenous Peoples.
