- Indigenous Ally Toolkit
“When it comes to creating a positive & sustainable impact on the lives of Indigenous Peoples living in Montreal, it is important to understand the role that an individual occupies and plays within the collective experience.
Being an ally is about disrupting oppressive spaces by educating others on the realities and histories of marginalized people.”
Project Development Checklist for Community-Based Research developed by CFICE and the Centre for Studies on Poverty Reduction & Social Citizenship
- Community-Based Research Tool
“Over the last five years, CFICE community and academic partners have worked together within 40+ community-campus engagement (CCE) projects, making a real difference on issues such as poverty reduction, community food security, community environmental sustainability and violence against women.
We have learned to increase our impact by seeking, first and foremost, to meet the needs of our community-based organization (CBO) partners who work on the front lines of social change. Through this approach we have deepened our relationships, addressed challenges and developed a strong sense of how to work in the context of unique community challenges, opportunities and strengths.”
- Actions to ensure community comes first
CFICE offers recommendations for those seeking to foster lasting impacts within their communities, including:
- Community-based organizations
- Partnership funders, and
- Post-secondary institutions
- Community-Campus Engagement Professionals
These resources were developed by Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE), a research project that studies how community and campus players work together to positively impact their communities.
- Community Engaged Pedagogy Videos
This Community Based Research project is a bundled set of experiential learning themed adaptable eLearning modules with complete scope that develops foundational skills in community-based research. The content within these modules is aimed at 2nd or 3rd year university students and aims to introduce users to the theory and practices of community-based research. The modules are meant to provide a foundation for students pursuing community-based research in senior-level capstone courses, or graduate school. Our goal was to use an innovative pedagogical approach that will provide this content in a bundled and online manner targeted at an undergraduate level.
These modules introduce principles and practices for community-based research. Our overall approach in the modules is to do research that puts community interests first. Links to modules can be found here.
