E-Learning events are case studies of exemplary community-based research projects in practice curated by CBRCanada into e-Learning series that run over a period of months to a year focused on big themes in the field. Many research projects we highlight come from the outstanding Excellence in Community-Based Research Award nominations we've received the previous year

How can community-based research create innovative solutions to the multiple crises we face?


In this 10-part e-learning series, Community-Based Research Canada showcases community-based research as a tool for responding to current crises and investigates what value it adds in efforts to innovatively solve issues and advance social development goals.

From September 2024 to June 2025, we follow three sub-themes - Theme 1) Responding to Health, Wellness, and Societal Inequity, Theme 2) Responding to the Climate Emergency, and Theme 3) Responding to the Housing and Affordability Crisis. A panel discussion and networking event will be held after each sub-theme to discuss innovative solutions and bring together researchers across the network engaging in community-based research in that field.
