  • Expand the reach and impact of CRISM’s engagement with First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples, including Urban Indigenous communities across Canada, and serve as a bridge between the Regional Nodes, the CRISM Network and Indigenous communities;
  • Inform, support and co-lead relevant activities of the CRISM Network Coordinating Centre and the Regional Nodes; and
  • Champion Indigenous-led substance use research to ensure that First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples, including Urban Indigenous communities; can engage, lead and participate in substance use research in a meaningful and culturally safe environment that is founded in Indigenous ways of knowing, priorities, and values.
