Welcome to Applied Sociology

This site was initiated by Bruce Ravelli (University of Victoria) with the research help of Faith, a VCURA undergraduate student. Our hope is to provide this open database to help visitors find Canadian applied sociologists and/or Community-Engaged Learning/Research resources, quickly and easily. We recognize and appreciate VCURA’s support for this initiative.

  • The results are being filtered by the department: Sociology
