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.

    The Centre for Community Based Research was hired to conduct training and capacity building for community-based research with the Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC). In collaboration with the Research & Innovation Committee of SCHC, CCBR designed a workplan to train SCHC staff in community-based research and facilitate a retreat to determine organizational research priorities & procedures. CCBR delivered a series of two workshops, twice, to train up to 30 individuals within the organization. Following the training, an in-person retreat was held with training attendees to draft preliminary research priority areas for the SCHC (to be further refined with community input), and to draft preliminary procedures for engaging with external research requests to ensure research is done in a community-based way. Training slides and a summary of the retreat discussion identifying preliminary research priorities and procedures and next steps were delivered to SCHC at the completion of this project.
