Our Services

Societies face pressing challenges that require innovative solutions. CCBR's experienced team facilitates groups to find effective solutions. Our integrity, expertise, and commitment to quality have earned us a reputation as an innovator and leader in community-based research. 

CCBR conducts applied research and evaluation with qualitative and quantitative methods, balancing academic excellence with community relevance. We also promote community-based research across Canada and around the world.

Conducting Community-Based Research

Evaluation
CCBR designs and conducts evaluations to provoke action and build stronger relationships among stakeholders. We help partners to design evaluation frameworks and conduct program evaluations, organizational reviews, and system-change evaluations.  
Feasibility Studies
CCBR conducts feasibility studies that assess the practicality of new community interventions, programs, and projects. We involve stakeholders to make sure that feasibility considers the unique community context.  
Needs and Resource Assessments
CCBR engages community members to assess their needs and resources within and across programs, service systems, and groups of people. We stress the importance of collaboration in developing effective solutions.
Policy Research
CCBR collaborates with partners to conduct research that develops, analyzes, and reviews public policy related to various levels of government. 
Facilitation and Planning
CCBR facilitates group processes to empower stakeholders in community planning and action. We collaborate with partners on proposal development, strategic planning, and organizational change.

Promoting Community-Based Research

Training and Education
CCBR offers capacity-building services for organizations, students, faculty members, and community members. This includes presentations, workshops, training, and academic courses.
Networking
CCBR connects people interested in community-based research and evaluation. We serve as the Secretariat for Community-Based Research Canada, and initiate Community-University Exposition (CUEXpo) Conferences. 
Ensuring Quality
CCBR has been instrumental in developing resources to ensure that community-based research is done with quality. The Community Research Ethics Office (CREO) was founded by CCBR in 2011. CCBR also launched the Community-Based Research Excellence Tool (CBRET) in 2018.
