What is the IAP2 Canada Research Committee?

The IAP2 Canada Research Committee works to help members better understand current public participation activities in Canada. Various engagement efforts with members found a need to increase access to research journals, training (including workshops) and training manuals; and to develop mechanisms for knowledge transfer among cross-disciplinary organizations. 

Research is focused on identifying trends, best practices and areas of innovation, as well as evaluating current research and publications for the purpose of identifying opportunities for partnership and collaboration. In 2014, the Research Committee produced its first Research Initiative Report, which included an environmental scan and the State of the Practice survey report. These documents, which helped develop the 2015-17 IAP2 Canada Strategic Plan, are in the process of being updated.

In 2016, the Research Committee surveyed members across the country on their needs and expectations for the organization. The results of the survey are now available in this document, and IAP2 members may view the special webinar of Tuesday September 12, here.

Among the Research Committee's other activities include "TLDR" (Too Long - Didn't Read), summaries of P2-related articles and papers. As well, the Committee is currently preparing an online library of work for members to access, which is expected to be available soon.

The Committee also commissions White Papers:

More White Papers are expected to be commissioned in 2018.
