Atlantic universities, Aboriginal communities renew research agreement on economic development

November 11, 2016

A partnership of Atlantic Canadian universities and the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nation Chiefs gathered at St Francis Xavier University earlier this week for the renewal of the Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Development Integrated Research Program. The move comes “at a time when all Canadian institutions, including universities, are working to address the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” said John Paul, Executive Director of AAEDIRP, who added that “together, we will work to advance awareness and understanding of reconciliation; and provide knowledge to support strategic policies and programs that will improve the lives of Atlantic Aboriginal peoples.” NationTalk
