Projects from 2017

Mobilizing Knowledge from the 2016 Guelph-Wellington Immigrant Survey

Fact sheets

These three highlight sheets were created in order to help the Guelph-Wellington Local Immigration Partnership mobilize the findings and recommendations from its 2016 Immigrant survey report. They present key data on immigrants' 1) basic needs and belonging, 2) employment, education and training, and 3) access to services. The Local Immigration Partnership is using these visual summaries both as hand-outs and large scale posters in order to share highlights from the report with a variety of stakeholders.

Youth Criminal Justice in Canada


This infographic was developed for Family Counselling and Support Services for Guelph-Wellington, and the Canadian Families and Corrections Network. It represents the typical journey of a youth offender (aged 12-17) when going through the Canadian criminal justice system. It then compares this journey to the process followed when guiding youth offender through restorative justice, and compares costs and outcomes of each process. It concludes that restorative justice is more than six times more cost-effective than traditional criminal justice.

Scan of Community Initiatives

This report was completed for Farm and Food Care Canada. It analyses six case studies from various initiatives in order to better understand what facilitates the diffusion of innovation and pro-environmental behaviours. Doing so, this report also identifies predictors of behaviour change and popular theories of behaviour change, and discusses general trends and potential obstacles for organizations trying to promote environmentally friendly behaviour.
