Community Partnerships
Ongomiizwin - Research has long-standing relationships with the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC), the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) and the Manitoba Inuit Association (MIA), each of which operates their own community-based research centres. Ongomiizwin - Research remains committed to maintaining and developing these relationships through continued collaborations and regular meetings with the 4 centres’ Researchers and Directors to ensure continuous relationship building, assess opportunities for future collaborations, strengthen mutual support, and ensure that the research we support responds to the needs and intentions of the communities these partners represent. In addition we continue to develop relationships and collaborations with other non-affiliated First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities. Together we draw on the principles of solidarity, mutual support and autonomy to frame our relationships.
