Community-Campus Engage Canada (CCEC), through the CFICE project, convenes National and Regional Roundtables to collaborate with grassroots partners, students, engagement practitioners, post-secondary institutions (PSIs), policy makers and funders to shape and fund the future of community-campus engagement (CCE) in Canada for nation-wide, positive social change.

The Goals of Roundtables

  1. Connect multi-sector partners who share similar goals of engaging with PSIs to advance stronger, more equitable communities and to increase community-based student learning and research opportunities
  2. Explore the current community-campus engagement landscape across Canadian regions, with a focus on the policy contexts and existing assets and opportunities, including networks, interests, and funding mechanisms
  3. Contribute ideas and recommendations to government bodies, funders and higher education PSI’s about improving the policies and funding mechanisms for community-campus engagement to have a greater positive impact on societal well being
  4. Grow the impact of community-campus engagement in Canada and globally through development of capacity building and funding programs, multi-sectoral collaboration, and network development.
