Blog

The Canadian Philanthropy Partnership Research Network allows for the publication of texts from our students, partners and researchers on PhiLab’s blog. In these documents, either in French or in English, they analyze news items, present an ongoing research project, present the state of a question or discipline in Canada or abroad in connection to the broad theme of philanthropy. This content is made to be available to a broad audience, for free.

Each text is subject to a thorough reading by PhiLab’s supervisors, who reserve the right to publish it. It is possible that author’s be asked to provide complements, to reformulate or to specify certain passages.
