Research Starts Here

The RSH form will help manage research applications from start to finish and allow the Research Office to identify and anticipate supports and services to assist Faculty throughout the grant cycle including: pre-award, proposal development, submission, and post-award management. To learn more and get further instrutions on how/where to fill out this form, visit the Research Starts Here page.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization (EDID) in Research

When applying for research grants, it is always important to consider how to integrate equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization considerations into the research practices and overall design. Many granting agencies require EDID to be formally named and described in applications. In addition, the University of Winnipeg Canada Research Chairs Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Plan has been in place as of December 2017. Here are some additional resources to help guide your EDID work:

Tri-Agency Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

EDID Resources for Tri-Agency Funding

Due to overwhelming demand, registration for the UWinnipeg Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Research Certificate in Winter 2023 is now closed. More EDI in Research training opportunities will be announced in Fall 2023.

Research with Indigenous Communities and Participants

Indigenous Peoples include persons who self-identify as being of First Nation, Inuit, or Métis descent. The University of Winnipeg recognizes the distinctiveness of all Indigenous communities across Canada and is committed to partnering with Indigenous Peoples, and expanding knowledge related to the rights and responsibilities of the peoples in Indigenous matters.

Indigenous Guidance Document

For information on conducting research in a good way with Indigenous communities and participants see our guidance document.

View the TCPS 2 policy guide on conducting research with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities


All faculty applying for new projects involving Indigenous Peoples and/or communities are expected to complete the RSH form at the outset of any proposed research application. Find out more about the RSH process and visit the Indigenous Research Ethics section on the human ethics resources page for more information on Indigenous ethics policies and procedures.

Hiring Research Support

The University of Winnipeg is committed to ensuring employment opportunities are accessible for all current and future research trainees. For more information on hiring research assistance, research associates and other research support, please visit Human Resources.

The Human Resources page will also be the place where you can view UWinnipeg's collective agreements and wage scales for those you intend to hire; this information is key when developing a grant application budget.

Publishing and Open Access

The University library offers a number of services to support researchers in making their research open access and available to the public for free. For more support, please visit the library or view the workshop we recently held on OA requirements below.

Research Data Management

Research Data Management, or RDM, is the responsible stewardship of the data created or generated as part of a research project. It involves the responsible storagedescription, and protection of research data, and should be an integral early part of any research project. You may already be practicing many of these principles.

If you have questions about RDM at UWinnipeg, please contact Sarah Giesbrecht, Research Data Management Librarian and visit the UW Library's RDM website.

For more information on Indigenous RDM, visit the Manitoba NEIHR website to view recordings of the online webinars on the topic, co-hosted by Kishaadigeh, the University of Winnipeg Library, and the University of Winnipeg Research Office.

Knowledge Mobilization and Research Impact Hub

Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) is a term used to define the connection between academic research or creative works and organizations, people, and government to improve programming and inform policy change. It is a process of relationship building and can be initiated either by the researcher or the agency for whom the research will make a difference. Traditionally, researchers have produced valuable knowledge and creative works that have been narrowly shared among other academics in similar disciplines, either through peer-reviewed journals or at conferences specific to an academic area of study. Translating that knowledge into a format that is more accessible to a range of sectors is critical to informing policy change and advancing social innovation through engaged scholarship. Knowledge mobilization is a process and research impact beyond the academy is the desired outcome.

To learn more about knowledge mobilization at the University of Winnipeg visit our Knowledge Mobilization and Research Impact Hub.
