WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE SESSIONS?
NCC staff will give a presentation to introduce and explain the work the department has been doing in and with communities. They will answer any questions you may have, and work with community members to identify key areas that they would like to see research focus on.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “RESEARCH”?
Research can include everything from submitting histories about family and culture, to identifying places where people harvest their fish and country foods, to sharing concerns and priorities about issues such as energy or health services.
Past research projects and initiatives by the REC department can be found by visiting the REC department’s website page.
DO I NEED TO BE A RESEARCHER OR EXPERT TO ATTEND?
No. This session is open to everyone! Community research is driven by and in cooperation with people in communities. You can attest to the things that matter most to you, your families and communities. You may know current gaps in information and stories and what is available or unavailable.
IS THERE ANY TRAVEL ASSISTANCE PROVIDED TO PEOPLE ATTENDING FROM OUT OF TOWN?
Yes. The Charlottetown session is open to Port Hope Simpson residents and the Mary’s Harbour session is open to St. Lewis and Lodge Bay residents. NCC will provide a gas gift card for community members who are traveling to attend.
Refreshments will be provided and there will be prizes at each session. Participants from all sessions will be entered for a chance to win a kayak.
Come learn about what we do and help guide us on important work in the future. All are welcome!
