SSG and Professor Ann Dale announce new Office of Research

| Community |
We are pleased to announce the opening of a new service to our clients. Our Office of Research will provide a new practitioner/academic model of ‘doing research’. The office will be led by Professor Ann Dale, Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Community Development, Royal Roads University. 

We have been collaborating with Professor Dale for the past 12 years, participating in a wide range of research projects, a strategic position paperfor the International Cooperatives Association; MC3: Meeting the Climate Change ChallengeCommunity Vitality Project; a regional workshop for the International Degrowth Movement; and the development of several policy papers, such as the Policy Agenda for Canadian Municipalities for Sustainable Development, to name only a few. 

The Office will continue to explore new ways of ‘doing research’ and strategic research alliances with other sectors of Canadian society. We are committed to trans-disciplinary collaborative applied research to produce on-the-ground useful knowledge to diverse decision-makers. A key imperative is to continue to discover new ways to enhance social innovation for the take-up of this knowledge and innovative ways of communicating research outcomes.
