We are excited to announce that are planning to host an Indigenous graduate student gathering from October 9th-13th 2022 in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador.


The gathering will bring together Indigenous graduate trainees in the Atlantic region. Priority will be given to Indigenous graduate trainees who are currently working within the Atlantic region and who are undertaking Indigenous health research that serves to benefit Indigenous communities in Atlantic Canada.


The gathering will provide the opportunity to: 1) learn from and with other Indigenous graduate students in the region, as well as from Indigenous scholars regarding challenges and opportunities related to graduate health research; 2) learn from local elders and knowledge-keepers about the importance of traditional knowledge in Labrador; 3) attend sessions related to academic writing, time management and professional development.


Limited travel funds are available. Unless otherwise approved, funding will be provided for travel within the Atlantic provinces only.

*Please note that there are events happening within Happy Valley-Goose Bay the weekend of October 8th-9th, such as the Trapline Marathon. If you wish to travel on the 7th or 8th of October, we will cover the flight cost, however the extra nights for accommodation will be the responsibility of the traveller. 

The application form for this gathering can be accessed here. Please complete this application and submit via email to by Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022 at 9pm ATL.
