KMb Forum

The Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum (CKF) is a biennial event that provides opportunities for professional development, learning and networking for those interested in knowledge mobilization, translation, and exchange. It brings together a community dedicated to sharing learnings, best practices, tools, and resources.

Theme

This year’s theme is: “Responding to New Realities: Learning from the past and present to inform the future” 

Over the last two years we’ve been living and working through a time of great transition and change. More than ever, there is a need for us to reach out beyond traditional mechanisms for more accessible sharing and learning. 

Globally and in Canada, we are seeing a shift in how knowledge and research are connected and used.  

To create change in our communities, we must move beyond raising awareness in the what and why of our research. We must engage, learn, and co-create how to do this work together.  We hope that CKF22 provides a space for us to share and learn from each other, so we can do this work better.  

We want to hear your perspectives on how knowledge mobilization has informed your research and practice. If you have or want to play a role in the KMb community and see the importance of KMb in the work that you do, we invite you to contribute to the forum. This is an opportunity to learn from and connect with others doing this important work.
