Community-Based Research Excellence Awards

Updated: Feb 12

Community-based research is an alternative research approach to traditional academic research that requires incredible dedication, time, energy, and skills. While maintaining academic research integrity, researchers engaging in community-driven, participatory, and action-oriented research devote a great amount of time toward relationship building and mobilizing knowledge to action. Community-based research has great potential to contribute toward transformative societal impact that benefit and uplift marginalized communities across Canada and around the world. This important work, however, often goes under recognized.
