building a stronger evidence base

Billions of dollars are invested in our social sector annually, but communities do not have access to the high quality research and data available in the private and public sectors.

Rigorous information on social issues can be challenging to access, not yet written, or available but written to represent one perspective only.CCSD conducts independent research on key social, economic, labour market and demographic issues, as well as provides statistical and analytical research services to our partners and clients. Many of our research reports are available online.

CCSD is committed to producing thoughtful and thought-provoking work on our social challenges of the day. We believe this is the only way to build informed understanding and discussion about these key issues, and social consensus on the ways forward. This information helps form a baseline for moving toward actionable solutions on the ground.
