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 project was to build evaluation capacity within organizations and groups that support refugees across Canada. The project was led by CCBR in partnership with the Evaluation Capacity Network at the University of Alberta.
    A cross-stakeholder advisory group guided this project. The group included researchers, representatives of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), representatives of government-funded resettlement agencies, Sponsorship Agreement Holders, immigrant settlement organizations with designated refugee programming, and community-based groups working with refugees.
    The project had 3 phases over 3-years: 1) developing a national evaluation capacity-building strategy, 2) holding evaluation capacity-building events across the country, and 3) providing evaluation support as organizations perform their evaluation. This project was funded by IRCC via the Service Development Improvements program.
