CMN Knowledge Hubs

In June 2021, CMN announced the launch of seven Knowledge Hubs located across Canada, which were co-led and co-developed by Indigenous communities, Elders and knowledge holders and Western researchers. These centres of activity bring together diverse participants with shared knowledge needs and priorities. These hubs include complementary research, training, knowledge mobilization, and networking programs, with approaches and results shared with other hubs, the broader research community, policymakers, and the general public.

Each hub recognizes and respects the value of both Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, doing and being, and advance approaches to bringing them together in order to support evidence-based decision-making. The Hubs will enhance Canada’s international leadership in areas of high current economic and social importance, including, but not limited to, reconciliation, preservation of Indigenous languages and knowledge systems, Indigenous stewardship, environmental monitoring and assessment, cumulative effects management, tourism development, economic diversification and nature conservation.
