Our room is a comfortable space that easily accommodates up to 35 people for meetings, workshops and community events. Access to a projector cart and coffee station is also included in all room bookings.

Technologies for Research

CCRLA has a variety of technological devices available that are useful for the purpose of conducting research, including: a desktop computer (Microsoft Office, SPSS, NVivo), digital camera, video camera and digital audio recorders.


CCRLA’s LibraryThing lists books available for use on the topic of community-based research, program evaluation, social justice and the field of community psychology.


Within a limited capacity, CCRLA is able to provide assistance or guidance to individuals and organizations engaging in community-based research projects or program evaluations. Learn more about how our centre can assist you through an evaluation project.
