We are a team of 75+ university faculty, graduate students, and administrators who received a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Training Grant to develop a provincial-based Indigenous Mentorship Network Program (IMNP) to support Indigenous graduate students, post doctoral fellows and new investigators to be successful in their pursuit of careers in the fields of health and wellness, Indigenous studies and community-based research.
From 2017 to 2022, we worked to create mentorship opportunities that address areas of need as identified by students and new investigators, and worked with students, faculty, administrators and the community to inform institutional change.
With the end of the Saskatchewan Indigenous Mentorship Network, Indigenous student mentorship will be supported through the CIHR-funded Networks Envrionments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR) networks. This is a 15-year initiative launched in 2020.
