Submitted by chrisling on 28 April 2009

Community Based Research Canada (CBRC) is a network of people and organizations engaged in Community-Based Research to meet the needs of people and communities. CBRC came into being through the Community University Expo Conference held in Victoria, BC in May of 2008. At that event a group of Canadian universities, research networks and community organizations launched CBRC with a declaration that stated:

This coalition of Canadian universities, research networks, and community organizations at CUexpo2008 in Victoria, British Columbia, is intended to enable and empower citizens across Canada to access, produce, and put into action knowledge that will make their communities more sustainable, fairer, safer, healthier, and prosperous.
