A new project called “Ărramăt: Strengthening Health and Well-Being through Indigenous-Led Conservation and Sustainable Relationships with Biodiversity” has been funded by SSHRC’s New Frontiers in Research Fund. The project, co-led by Carleton’s Danika Littlechild in the Department of Law and Legal Studies involves more than 150 Indigenous organizations, universities and other partners, and aims to simultaneously empower Indigenous peoples to apply their knowledge and engage Indigenous youth in the realm of biodiversity conservation and land governance.

Paloma Raggo and team of faculty in the Master of Philanthropy and Non-profit Leadership program at Carleton has launched a major five-year research project within the School of Public Policy and Administration that will change knowledge about the charitable sector in Canada. The Charity Insights Canada Project will collect and share accurate, relevant and timely information about the Canadian charitable sector. The data generated through this work will support the long-term economic viability, impact and resiliency of the sector.

Efficiency Canada is the national voice for an energy efficient economy. Housed at Carleton’s Sustainable Energy Research Centre, it envisions a future where Canada uses energy efficiency to its fullest potential. In 2022, they released four influential research reports that have seen uptake at the federal level including their 2022 Canadian Energy Efficiency Scorecard and the Municipal Guide to Net Zero Energy-Ready Building Codes. They also launched the DiscoverEE Hub, an online portal that is helping more people join the energy efficiency sector in Canada. Last year, more than 18,000 people visited the site to explore events, training and career opportunities.

Researchers at Carleton and the University of British Columbia joined forces to help scholars and others who are fleeing the crisis in Afghanistan, especially women and ethnic minorities, establish a new intellectual community in Canada. Their project, “Placement, Preservation and Perseverance: Afghan At-Risk Scholars, Activists and Students,” received a $1.096 million grant from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Carleton is also contributing $164,000 towards the project, reflecting the university’s leadership in supporting the Scholars at Risk initiative.

A new initiative based in Carleton’s Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) is seeking to correct the imbalance in research informing forced displacement policy. Supported with $8 million over seven years, the International Development Research Centre’s (IDRC) Research Chairs on Forced Displacement Network will establish 12 research chairs at universities in Africa, South and Central America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The chairs will form an international network to encourage collaboration and amplify their findings.
