Community of Practice

Community of practice meetings actively bring together CBRCanada members from across Canada and beyond 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.  


​​The Community of Practice is being re-invigorated this year with the direction of participants. The group will meet the second Friday of every other month. The group meetings will be one hour, informal, and participatory. At the first meeting (February 11th, 2022, 12noon-1pm ET) we will meet each other, and identify themes and discussions questions for upcoming meetings. Sign up to receive re-occurring calendar invitations for the entire year. You can unsubscribe at any time and can attend as many meetings as you wish.

“I am appreciating being part of CBRCanada’s

Community of Practice. I have been able to

connect with community-based research focused

faculty and staff at various academic institutions

across Canada. I am also learning about

resources and non-academic organizations which

can be used to facilitate community-based

research. These connections and resources are

proving to be very valuable in promoting

community-based research within my own

research centre.”

I’m glad to meet new people in this field, passionate about community-based research. I felt comforted around my nervousness practicing community-based research.
