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.
The purpose of this project was to develop a Monitoring and Evaluation Toolkit to support governments and civil society in building monitoring and evaluation mechanisms into the design of refugee community sponsorship programs.

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 the labour market with the assistance of supported employment service providers.

In close collaboration with staff from the Alzheimer Society of Ontario (ASO), we conducted a province-wide evaluation of the accessibility and value of their First Link Care Navigation (FLCN) services to racialized, Indigenous and ethnically diverse service users (people living with dementia and care providers). Findings from the study were used to inform ASO’s ongoing efforts to close the gap in dementia support for racialized, Indigenous and ethnically diverse communities.
Drawing on multiple qualitative methods, the TMC and CCBR worked collaboratively to build their overarching evaluation framework including a theory of change, main evaluation questons, monitoring tools and implementation plan.
