The Social Innovation Research Group (SIRG)

Groupe de recherche en innovation sociale (GRIS)

  • A research and popular education training incubator which honours a critical examination of community development and micro, mezzo, macro research initiatives on a local, national and international level;

  • An educational arena whereby faculty, students and community partners engage in community-based research projects designed to meet the needs of community partners and individuals who seek our support and networks to enhance their own community capacity building strategies;

  • A training portal whereby M.S.W. and Ph.D. students are encouraged to develop research skills in collaboration with community partners (funding proposals, process and outcome evaluations, needs assessments, etc.);

  • A bridge between the university and the larger community in order to enhance innovative and creative working partnerships which value arts based social development as a legitimate component of community development practice;

  • A crossroads of academic and community stakeholders who believe and honour the idea that universities should be of service to the communities in which they operate and value mutuality in working partnerships, social innovation and social justice.
