Community Based Research

The OPIRG Community-Based Research Program assists and connects students and community groups wishing to conduct research related to social justice.

OPIRG supports research initiatives which add to our collective knowledge and help to challenge existing policies, to create new services or resources which better address the needs of our diverse community and ecosystem. OPIRG uses participatory research (also known as action research, participatory action research, collaborative research, community-based participatory research or community-directed research). This research model is participatory in nature and is a process of learning and sharing together, in other words the process of co-generating knowledge
