Researching with Communities — Axelle Janczur: Transformative research and program planning
On November 26th, 2015 CIFAR held a symposium to explore how we can better use research to improve the lives of individuals in our communities.
With the United Way Toronto & York Region, CIFAR’s newest Change Makers dialogue brought together service providers and researchers to share knowledge and experience of the research process in order to identify ways of improving the policies and programs that serve our communities.
