Community Consultation Standards
The objective of the community consultation guide is to prepare researchers to visit a Keewaytinook and Okimakanak (KO) affiliated community in North Western Ontario. It is a compilation of experiences and recommendations offered by community members and leaders, KO staff and community–based researchers.
The Chiefs of Keewaytinook Okimakanak have created a research institute (KORI) to document, conduct and promote research about issues relevant to First Nation communities, with particular emphasis about the various impacts of ICTs. KORI has developed relationships with a number of academic insitutions and community-driven organizations across Canada. The KO Research Institute’s mandate is to change the way First Nation research is conducted within its sphere of influence.
