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.
CCBR partnered with Mercy Corps, Conrad Grebel University College, and Community Justice Initiatives to conduct youth-led action research within a 26-month program designed to increase community security and reduce violence within four communities in the country of Haiti.
The Young Women and Cyber Violence Project was a 24-month evaluation project implemented by three frontline agencies to engage girls and young women aged 14–24 of diverse racial and ethno-cultural backgrounds across the City of Toronto to identify and address cyber-violence experienced by their peers. This evaluation was funded by St. Stephen’s House Youth Services.
CCBR conducted an in-depth analysis on the prevalence of violence against women in Perth and Huron with the Social Research and Planning Council.
Youth participants identified the most pressing anti-violence issues for their peers in six Greater Toronto Area schools and organized an event to create awareness. CCBR conducted an evaluation of this initiative by developing all data collection tools, a youth researcher guide, and training youth researchers to carry out data collection. The evaluation was funded by the Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children (METRAC).
CCBR conduced an evaluation of the Hate Crime Prevention Project, a new initiative launched by the Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Centre (KWMC). The purpose of the evaluation was to identify project implementation strengths and challenges, measure outcomes, and provide a summary of lessons learned. Main methods included document review, participant observation, analysis of evaluation forms, and an online survey.
CCBR supported the evaluation of the Neighbours, Friends, and Families Campaign, a public awareness campaign designed to reach neighbours, friends and family members of women and their children who are experiencing abuse. CCBR’s role was the completion of data analysis and a summary report. This evaluation was funded by the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women & Children.
The main purpose of the research was to better understand the impact of alleged hate motivated crimes on the community as a whole. The study focused on particular communities impacted by particular hate incidents and was not an attempt to examine the public opinion regarding hate crime in general. This research was funded by the Department of Justice Canada.
CCBR provided process and outcome evaluation support for a national project called Empowering Minds and Bodies, designed to teach self-esteem and social skills in areas of violence and bullying, gender roles, and body image.
