The Community-Based Research Excellence Tool (CBRET)

All CBRCanada training includes exclusive accress to CBRET, a reflective tool that assesses the quality and impact of projects when 1) planning a community-based research project; 2) designing existing projects; and 3) evaluating proposals or past projects. CBRET was collaboratively developed as a result of the 2014 SSHRC-funded National Summit on Community-Campus Collaborative Research Indicators of Excellence held in Waterloo Ontario and tested nationally and internationally (read more). 

What People are Saying

CBRET workshops have taken place across Canada. Workshop participants highly praised the effective facilitation, hands-on application, networking, learning about community-based research, and thought-provoking discussions. Read the workshop reports here.

This tool helps to balance power among people and describes how to work well with all. This is not a math formula, it is really a new mindset for designing and conducting community-based research”
