Welcome to the CRP 

Designated as a Core Research Platform at McMaster, the CRP is led by the Faculty of Social Sciences in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association Hamilton (CMHA), Center [3] for Artistic and Social Practice (C[3]), Hamilton Public Library (HPL), John Howard Society of Ontario (JHSO) and YWCA Hamilton (YWCA).  

The CRP is a unique model of community-university research partnership. We identify, develop and sustain relational and physical infrastructure (i.e., relationships, expertise, space, software, data, and equipment) as a basis for impactful community-engaged research and knowledge exchange.
