Welcome to IMPACT, the innovative knowledge mobilization initiative of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa. This project is led by a team of professors who want to advance a new model for policy development in Canada.

Our purpose is threefold:

  1. Maintain a vibrant space to promote evidence-based and policy-relevant research from the University of Ottawa;
  2. Contribute to the policy expertise of governments in Canada and beyond;
  3. Build bridges to link community members together, furthering our potential for creative thinking in response to pressing issues, today and into the future.

Below you will find a series of non-partisan policy-relevant briefs on pressing issues, compiled ahead of the 2019 federal election campaign.
