Bridging the Research to Practice Gap: Sharing Local Research between Community Agencies and Academia

On April 17, 2015, over 100 representatives from Peel community-based agencies joined faculty and students from Sheridan College to share local research that supports improving outcomes for children and youth. The research covered a wide range topics and disciplines including health, justice, social services, education, the arts and early child development. A key theme for the day was finding innovative solutions to complex issues facing the child and youth sector today.
