Get involved with Community-Based Research Canada

August 9, 2022

RRC Polytech is proud to be a member of Community-Based Research Canada (CBRCanada), a national champion and facilitator of community-based research excellence (a research approach addressing challenging societal problems). CBRCanada is a membership-based organization of community organizations, colleges, universities, research institutes, and community-based researchers.

Membership grants us access to valuable courses and professional development activities. Here are some upcoming events available to all RRC Polytech staff and students:

  • Community of Practice (August 12)
    • Community of practice meetings actively bring together CBRCanada members to engage in meaningful discussions.
    • All involved in community-based research are welcome, whether you are a researcher, peer-researcher, student, project coordinator, administrator, director, or community leader.
    • The purpose of the community of practice is to network with others, learn from each other, and exchange best practices.
