We are often contracted by provincial and federal governments and not-for-profit organizations to conduct or summarize research evidence to inform their evidence-based policy decision making and improve practices. Past collaborators include: Employment and Social Development Canada, Veterans Affairs Canada, Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP), Caregivers Alberta, Seniors Association of Greater Edmonton (SAGE), and the Greater Edmonton Foundation (Seniors Housing). Through Graduate Research Assistantships, we often mentor graduate students (*) through the writing process. Here’s a sample of reports from the last five years:
