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 purpose of this evaluation was to assess the process and outcomes of the Syrian and Newcomer Youth Mentorship Initiative model delivered under the Opening Doors Project at CMHA Toronto. This initiative is funded by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada and supported by the Canadian Mental Health Association.

    Youth mentors in the Syrian and Newcomer Youth Mentorship Initiative provide a variety of supports (i.e., mental health, language, family guidance) to newcomer youth (Syrian, Somali, and from other communities) as they navigate the settlement process in Canada. The evaluation would provide indications to improve the program delivery and potentially to adapt the initiative to other settings.
