CCL supports a wide variety of activities to foster evidence-based research on learning, build Canada’s capacity for research on learning, and encourage the use of research on learning to make informed decisions about learning policies and programs. This page contains some quick links to a variety of information for Canadian researchers in the field of learning.
Experiential learning complements students’ academic learning and provides youth with experiences and knowledge that maximize their growth and development while meeting their needs for career exploration.
CCL was contracted by the Ontario Ministry of Education to undertake a systematic rapid evidence assessment (SREA) of the research literature devoted to examining the effects of experiential learning (EL) programs on student success.
CCL produces and publishes reports on different aspects of learning for partner organizations and commissions other organizations to produce reports. View reports:

A Systematic Review is an approach to gathering, analyzing and synthesizing a body of research on a given topic. As systematic reviews are typically collaborative in nature, the CCL research team works in conjunction with professions, experts and practitioners in the field to ensure all key resources are accessed.
The Journal of Applied Research on Learning (JARL) is a research publication that addresses specific, practical problems affecting learning in Canada and applied research of significance to learning in Canada.
