Special Panel Discussion: Towards a Canadian community-based research network?

Towards a Canadian community-based research network?
April 12, 2007
4-6 pm
Room 7-105 OISE/UT
252 Bloor Street West, Toronto (St. George Subway stop)

Community-based research (CBR) is experiencing a new wave of energy in Universities across Canada. Building on traditions of participatory research, feminist research, anti-oppressive research, SSHRC and other research councils such as Canadian Institutes for Health Research now fund various forms of CBR. There have been two large meetings in Canada on Community University Partnerships, Policy, and Progress (Cuexpo 2003 and 2005), with a third planned for May of 2008. There is a growing interest in more intentional networking across the country. Should this be done? How can it be done? What pre/cautions need to be taken into account? What are the existing building blocks? What can be learned from others?.
