Community-based research has great potential to contribute toward transformative societal impact that benefit and uplift marginalized communities across Canada and the world. This important work, however, often goes under recognized. CBRCanada annually recognizes excellence in community-based research through a national award program. Stay tuned for the 2024 call for nominations in January 2024.
