About Us


The goals of I-CAARE are to (1) explore and promote healthy aging with Indigenous peoples, and (2) raise awareness about cognitive health in Indigenous communities. To do this work, we manage a number of research projects, from developing health care technology for older Indigenous adults to understanding the lived experiences of Indigenous people with dementia and their caregivers. Though research takes place across Canada and the U.S., much of our work is based on Manitoulin Island, and led by community research staff. In addition to our research projects, we also engage in a number of activities in the areas of capacity building and international collaboration.
