Once a term join Dagen Perrott and Jess Klassen for this introductory session on Community-Based Research (CBR) and the Manitoba Research Alliance (MRA). The session will cover some of the core principles of CBR, its history, and provide relevant case studies of what CBR looks like in practice. Participants will become familiar with what it means for research to be community-led, participatory, action oriented, and involve meaningful relationships. Participants will also have the chance to connect with Jess Klassen, the project coordinator for the MRA, to learn about upcoming MRA opportunities, events, and research. 

For those interested in learning more about CBR and getting connected with the opportunities to be a part of it in Manitoba, this session is a perfect place to start.

We are excited to invite you to join us in Winnipeg May 13th and 14th for our free 2024 Summer Institute. This institute builds on the success of the Community-Based Research Training Centre’s (CBRTC) inaugural CBR Summer Institute. This two-day event will provide hands-on workshops, in-depth discussions, and networking opportunities around community-based research. Tentative sessions include: designing a CBR project, how to approach surveys in CBR, strategies for knowledge mobilization, student stories of CBR, and more. The CBRTC will be providing refreshments, lunch, and snacks on both days as well as a reception after day one.

The Community-Based Research Training Centre offers free training and networking events for community members, students, and faculty on topics related to community-based research. You can find our upcoming events above and a list of previous sessions here. We also offer free introductory outreach sessions to classes and organizations interested in learning more about community-based research:

Community-Based Participatory Research: A Primer
This presentation looks at Community-Based Research through its core principles, its history, and how it is specifically approached by the CBRTC. After this presentation, participants should understand what it means for research to be community-led, participatory, action oriented, and involve meaningful relationships. Participants will become familiar with some arguments for why Community-Based Research is important, the limitations it faces, and what opportunities are available to do this approach in Manitoba.
