Indigenous CREATE (Collaborative Research and Training Experience) is a program funded by NSERC and hosted at the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources, at the University of Manitoba, in collaboration with Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and University College of the North in Thompson and The Pas, Manitoba.

The Indigenous CREATE program provides training opportunities for students who want to better understand ongoing changes in the environment by participating in research projects with Indigenous communities that aim to understand the implications of a diversity of stressors, including climate change, hydropower, mining, and wastewater. This program is specifically aimed at finding ways that serve the learning and employability needs of Indigenous trainees. The research conducted in this program will be holistic in approach and focus on both the environment and community well-being within the environmental sector (natural resources, energy, and the environment). 

For more information about the program, please see “About Training Opportunities”.
The research focuses for this program include:

Water quality

such as environmental contaminants and xenobiotics and in water flow that are in turn associated with changes in land use.

Traditional-use plants and medicines

including wild rice, berries, and medicines as well as associated habitat, and implications of these for human well-being.

Traditional-use fish and wildlife

including lake sturgeon, whitefish and moose and the implications for community livelihoods and food security.

Indigenous-led and community-based monitoring

as a response to such environmental change.

Networking, outreach and communications

with industry, governments and NGOs as well as the public regarding these findings.

Community-led evaluation

of programs within communities that are related to the environment.
