Who We Are

Since 1982, the Centre for Community Based Research (CCBR) has strengthened communities through research. CCBR is a Canadian forerunner in conducting and promoting community-based research. 

We are passionate about bringing people together to imagine and build innovative solutions to pressing societal issues. Our approach to research is community-driven, participatory, and action-oriented. It mobilizes people to participate in creating more responsive and supportive communities, especially for people with limited power and opportunity.

CCBR is a non-profit organization located on the University of Waterloo campus (in St. Paul's University College). We receive no core funding, relying on our entrepreneurial spirit in collaboration with our many partners.
