The Centre for Community Disaster Research at Mount Royal University is a trans-disciplinary centre for research, education, and outreach related to disasters, crises, catastrophes, and pandemics. Our work focuses on social, environmental, economic, biological, medical, and technological disasters. The CCDR is mandated with promoting rigorous academic research that is led by community need and involves university researchers, undergraduate/graduate students, government stakeholders, policy-makers, community organizations, and knowledge end-users.
