Train to be a Community-Based Researcher!

BC Metis Federation is calling for all interested members and self-identifying Metis individuals across the province who are interested in participating in community research.

As part of the Terrestrial Cumulative Effects Initiative (TCEI) capacity building, the BC Metis Federation research team continues efforts to identify future local researchers. We are gathering a list of people interested in being mentored to be community researchers.

Community researchers are in high demand! This role is a unique opportunity to participate in the documentation, sourcing and sharing of local community history.

As a Community Researcher you will:

  • Conduct community research on Metis history
  • Practice Indigenous research methods
  • Research primary/secondary sources
  • Build community research capacity
  • Learn to mentor others

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research. Selected individuals will be compensated for project work.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please reach out to our Director of Research, Joe Desjarlais by Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022. Joe can be reached at or by phone at 778-892-0095.
