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.
Two community-based research projects with Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) were conducted with a mutually reinforcing goal of institutional change. The first project developed an equity, diversity, and inclusion strategy across CMU, using a systems change framework and theological lens and the second project explored what it means for diverse constituent groups to hold CMU in common.
CCBR worked closely with Food Banks Canada to enhance the evaluation framework for their After the Bell program. Drawing on insights from qualitative discussions with staff and partners, we strengthened both the processes and outcomes of their evaluation, with attention to the impact of their program through an equity, diversity and inclusion lens.
CCBR supported the Bell Brass Family Resource Centre evaluation through a series of capacity-building and coaching events. These events equipped BBFRC to use a community-based approach when conducting an internal evaluation of its CAPC/CPNP & other Early Years programming. Topics covered included theories of change, surveys, data analysis, and reporting and acting on findings.
