IAP2 Canada Research Papers

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. The State of the Practice survey reports helped guide the development of the IAP2 Canada Strategic Plan.

The Committee has also commissioned and published the following Research Papers, which are available for downloading:


Among the Research Committee's other activities include "TLDR" (Too Long - Didn't Read), summaries of P2-related articles and papers, which appear from time to time in the semi-monthly IAP2 Canada newsletter or eblasts.


Upcoming Research

IAP2 Canada continues to examine the trends affecting P2 practice across the nation. IAP2 sponsored research by authors Stéphanie Yates and Hugo Mimee into COVID-19 and Its Impact on the Field and Practice of Public Participation. This paper builds understanding of remote participatory approaches in our new virtual and digital practice. Watch for the release in September.

Also coming up:

  • Research Paper update - Digital Engagement, Social Media & Public Participation - Addendum to be released towards the end of 2021. 
  • This fall 2021: the next edition of Scope of Practice Survey 2020 results.
