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 collaboratively design and disseminate a framework to monitor and evaluate the settlement activities of Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAH) and Private Sponsorship Constituent Groups (CGs). The project built the capacity of CGs by clarifying roles, responsibilities and promising practices, while providing more national consistency for SAHs to assess their efforts towards evidence-based support. The project was led by the Centre for Community Based Research (CCBR) in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee Canada (MCCC).
