IMPACT

A team of professors from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa launched an initiative designed to advance a new model for policy development in Canada.

Our task is to compile a series of non-partisan policy-relevant briefs on pressing issues that face Canadians today, well in advance of the 2019 federal election campaign.

Our goals are threefold:

  • First, we wish to build policy knowledge among Canadians before the election.
  • Second, we hope to contribute to the policy expertise of governments in Canada - federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal.
  • Finally, we intend to build new bridges linking community members together to further our potential for creative thinking to respond to the pressing issues that face us today and into the future.
