A lot has changed in the last few years. What are some research questions or collections of information and data that could support our quest for a more equitable province, in part through poverty reduction?

The Manitoba Research Alliance (MRA) is a group of academic researchers, students, and community partners producing community-based research. The MRA, hosted by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives-Manitoba, has held 4 successful Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) grants. With the current grant entitled Community-Driven Solutions to Poverty: Challenges and Possibilities, the MRA is supporting community-based research projects in four research streams: 1) Community Economic Development (CED); 2: Housing; 3) Education, Employment and Social Inclusion; 4) Justice, Safety and Security.
