Dechinta is honoured to announce our success in securing two SSHRC (Social Sciences Humanities Research Council of Canada) grants:
A $183,000 SSHRC Partnership Development Grant over three years led by Dr. Stephanie Irlbacher Fox, (University of Toronto, Institute for Circumpolar Health Research, Dechinta Faculty) and Marianne Douglas (Canadian Circumpolar Institute) and various northern and southern collaborative partners.
A SSHRC Partnership Grant led by investigators Dr. Glen Coulthard (University of British Columbia, Yellowknife Dene First Nation) and Erin Freeland Ballantyne (Oxford University, Dechinta) with partners including the Indigenous Governance Programme of the University of Victoria, University of British Columbia, Deton’Cho Corporation, McGill University, Institute for Circumpolar Health Research, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Native Communications Society, Department of Education, Culture, and Employment (GNWT), and Northern and National First Nation researchers have been granted $20,000 towards the preparation of a final submission. The project would result in 2.4M in support of northern innovation opportunities from 2012-2016. These collaborative projects explore consensus, self-determination, health, resilience, sustainable economic development and community wellness rooted through a land-based cooperative research and innovation program.
