Online event

This Fall and Winter 2021-2022, CBRCanada is linking webinars with live discussions on the theme of community-based research and COVID-19. A week following each webinar, CBRCanada invites CBRCanada members to participate in a live discussion and explore how to integrate learnings from the webinar.

This live discussion is the fourth in the series . Webinar presenters will ask questions for participants to discuss in small groups. The event will end with a big group discussion and everything will be recorded live in a Google doc. We will reflect, problem solve and support each other as we grapple with these important issues.

The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants.

We encourage you to join the webinar "Closing the Opportunity Gap for Racialized and Under Resources Communities in the Community School Initiative." on December 9 at 12 noon ET live or watch the webinar recording (posted here), which we will be shared before the live discussion.
