Community Engagement Reports

ACUNS members have found that most research grants focus on the natural sciences, and there is a need to broaden the scope of research to include social sciences, humanities, and health sciences (SSHHS). The Association held meetings with the research community and knowledge users in Yukon (2016) and Northwest Territories (2017). There are plans to produce a similar report for Nunavut in the future.

Ethical Principles

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.
