Call for Papers “Fostering Biimaadiziwin”- A National Research Conference on Urban Aboriginal Peoples

The National Research Conference on Urban Aboriginal Peoples will be held in Toronto, Ontario on February 23 and 24, 2011.  The conference will be ‘forward looking’ and will engage new approaches, bringing together a rich network of Canadian researchers and academics, policy-makers, community members and practitioners.

We are interested in papers, presentations, panels and policy roundtables from various research and practice environments, such as community organizations, academia, advanced students and government that explore and examine how urban Aboriginal (First Nations, Non-Status Indians, Métis, and Inuit) and non-Aboriginal communities, organizations, and institutions are pursuing this important Aboriginal community and public policy goal. We are also interested in examining how different levels of government are supporting this goal and how they might support it in the future.
