The Centre for Research, Innovation & Scholarship (CRIS) helps keep communities safe through an active applied research agenda engaging first responders, first receivers, practitioners, policy makers, stakeholders and services users. The Centre develops new knowledge in emerging disciplines that informs best practice and public policy, enhances justice and public safety curriculum, and leverages learning technologies and methodologies and increases public awareness. Formerly known as Centre for Applied Research (CAR).
The applied research projects that are housed within the Centre for Resilient Communities enable communities to build on and enhance their ability to plan for and be more effective and resilient in the case of emergency disasters.
CTLI adopts a flexible, team-based approach to program, course, resource, and faculty development for both internal JIBC programs and specialized contract or client interfacing training and education projects.
