Our Governance

Two committees support the project: 1) A Partners’ Committee is made up of individuals who have signed on to represent organizations who share a common goal to support human rights for residents of the neighbourhood; and 2) A Community Advisory Committee is includes interested individuals and representatives from community organizations who wish to learn more about the research and assist with project activities. Each committee meets annually or as needed to receive updates on project activities and to provide guidance to the research team. Meetings use a consensus-oriented decision-making process where disagreements or conflicting perspectives are discussed through equitable dialogue and negotiation.
