CRECS Network

We collaborate primarily with the educational, social service, and community health sectors, in their work with children, adolescents, and adults, including those who are vulnerable or have special needs. We strive to represent the University of Ottawa, and our co-sponsoring faculties (Social Sciences and Education), in these service sectors.

We aim to produce new knowledge and mobilize existing knowledge to improve practice and policy. We also provide training to many graduate and undergraduate students, as well as those in our part-time graduate certificate program in Program Evaluation.
