This project was a one year pilot-phase of the Community Research Ethics Support Office (CREO) in Waterloo Region. CREO was tailored to meet the needs of individuals conducting community based research (i.e. participatory action research, program evaluations, feasibility studies, needs assessments, gap analyses). The initiative was extremely exciting as it was the first office of its kind in Canada. See www.communityresearchethics.com and See here for more information.
