September 2021: Respectful community engaged research


This issue of the PhiLab Atlantic hub newsletter entitled, “Respectful community engaged research” considers how philanthropy is complimented by an engaged approach to research to guide responsive philanthropy in the Atlantic context. In a recent video posting from the PhiLab Ontario Regional Conference, Jean Marc Mangin (President and CEO of Philanthropic Foundations of Canada) begins by discussing the current big picture for the philanthropy sector in Canada, which he describes to be at a moment of opportunity for the sector to develop new social contact with Canadians. The transformational moment he describes is due to the co-occurring political, economic and social shifts that have risen out of the pandemic. He speaks of the critical role that research plays at this moment in helping to shed light on how these transformations are relevant to practice and policy.

In this issue, we highlight our recent regional conference and its engagement with communities and provide multiple perspectives on how community-based research (CBR) is being applied in the Atlantic hub.
