ACUNS 2014-2015 Annual Report
Over the past several years, ACUNS members identified that most of the Association’s research awards focus on the natural sciences, and that there is a need to broaden the scope to include social sciences, humanities and health sciences (SSHHS) topics. The Association has held meetings with Yukon and the Northwest Territories research community members and knowledge users to identify research principles, processes, and priorities that could inform ACUNS, its member institutions, other research bodies, research funders, and scholarship providers. A similar engagement process and report is planned for Nunavut in 2019-2020.

Nunavut (coming in 2019)
ACUNS has been capturing the evolution of the conduct of ethical research in the Canadian North for over twenty years, producing and maintaining guidelines for researchers that have been widely adopted. These guidelines are regularly updated to reflect changing social and political context, with an intensive review planned in 2018-2019. The most recent version received recognition from international organizations and circumpolar countries for acknowledging the relationships between scholarship, research, and community. ACUNS’ ethics guide is currently available in English, French, Inuktitut, and Russian translations.
