CCBR typically has 15-20 ongoing projects and has completed over 450 projects since 1982. Each project is guided by our commitment to impacting social change in practical and powerful ways. We conduct research with people not on people, cultivating respect with communities at every step of the process.

    Projects can be searched for using words from the project title or using the service area, theme, or date range for the project. You can also type 'Service Area' or 'Theme' into the search bar to get a list of options in each of these fields.

     CCBR collaborated with the Halton Suicide Prevention Council (HSPC) to gain a better understanding of suicide prevention needs in Halton. The HSPC project Working Group was composed of community agency representatives and volunteers knowledgeable in the field of suicide prevention. They have embraced a community-based approach to determining their organizational priorities, to address suicide awareness, prevention, intervention, and postvention.

    Members of the HSPC include: Halton Region Health Department, Canadian Mental Health Association, Halton District School Board, Halton Catholic District School Board, Oakville Public Library, ADAPT, ROCK, Halton Healthcare, Distress Centre Halton, Halton Regional Police, Heartache2Hope, LHIN, YMCA.

    CCBR helped the Working Group to review existing literature, engage in a research ethics process, and conduct focus groups and interviews with knowledgeable service providers and folks with lived experience. Together we investigated the regional data concerning priority populations, means, risks and protective factors, as well as gaps in data and community services.
