Pillars

Our Mission

CASDA’s research and data initiatives strive to build bridges across islands of research and policy excellence throughout the country to advance community driven projects.

Our primary mechanism

Convening. Collaborating. Catalyzing.

The projects we undertake and support:

  • Are in priority areas identified by the community and policy makers
  • Have the involvement of persons with lived experience and support of self advocates
  • Advance pan-Canadian collaboration and breaking silos
  • Leverage existing research infrastructure and reducing duplication
