CCBR typically has 12-15 ongoing projects and has completed over 400 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.
- 8959_Diversity Works: Supported Employment Experiences of BIPOC Job Seekers Who Experience Disability
The purpose of the Diversity Works project was to explore the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour who experience disability (BIPOC-D) as they navigate their employment journey with the assistance of supported employment service providers. The Centre for Community-based Research (CCBR) and the Canadian Association of Supported Employment (CASE) worked collaboratively to meaningfully engage BIPOC-D job seekers in a sequential research design that included a national survey, focus groups, in-depth interviews and photovoice.
The findings from this study captured: 1) the experiences of BIPOC jobseekers who experience disability (BIPOC-D); 2) the strengths and challenges faced by employment service providers who assist BIPOC-D job seekers; and 3) the experiences of employers as they strive to diversity their staff.
