Host Institution – CCPA

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) – Manitoba Office is the host institution for the MRA’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant. The CCPA is an independent, non-partisan research institute concerned with issues of social and economic justice. The CCPA’s National Office was established in 1980 and is Canada’s leading progressive research institute for public policy. By combining solid research with extensive outreach, we work to enrich democratic dialogue and ensure Canadians know there are workable solutions to the issues we face.  The CCPA offers analysis and policy options to the media, general public, social justice and labour organizations, academia and government.  We produce research studies, policy briefs, books, editorials and commentary.

CCPA – Manitoba Office is the local provincial CCPA office, and was formed in 1997. The Manitoba Office has continued to publish alternative policy recommendations and analysis on a range of issues, with a particular emphasis on poverty and labour. CCPA – Manitoba Office has established a reputation for our collaborative research model in which we work with community organizations on research into solutions to Aboriginal and inner-city poverty.
