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 and the Guelph Wellington Local Immigration Partnership partnered to investigate newcomer youth experiences with good mental health, mental health challenges, and mental health supports/services in city of Guelph and County of Wellington and to provide evidence-based recommendations on how to improve mental health outcomes for newcomer youth, and further support immigrant service provider organizations to help youth overcome barriers and fulfill their potential. The research methods include a document review, key informant interviews, focus groups, and a survey and will be wrapped up with a community forum.

    The research team consists of Janna Martin, project lead (janna@communitybasedresearch, researcher, CCBR), Rich Janzen, project supervisor (co-executive director, CCBR), Victoria Dickson, team member (MSW student placement, CCBR), Sherrylea Perera, team member (project specialist, GWLIP), Nicholas Docherty, team member (project assistant, GWLIP), Leen Al-Habash, team member (project manager, GWLIP).
