About the Canadian Research Network on Transitions to Adulthood from Care
In March 2022, CWLC worked with Dr. Varda-Mann Feder at Concordia University to launch a partnership with the Canadian Research Network on Transitions to Adulthood from Care (CANTRAC).
CANTRAC is the Canadian chapter of the global International Research Network on Transitions to Adulthood from Care (INTRAC). Currently comprised of researchers primarily from Quebec and Newfoundland, CANTRAC aims to grow its membership from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
The purpose of the CWLC and CANTRAC partnership is to:
Facilitate dialogue and collaboration between care-leaving researchers across Canada.
Promote the development of emerging researchers via doctoral candidates, early career academics, and researchers pioneering care-leaving research in Canada.
Promote Canadian national and cross-national research on care-leaving.
Create or support opportunities for publication of national, international, and comparative studies on care-leaving.
Facilitate the knowledge translation of research findings to inform youth in care policy and practice in Canada.
