Connecting with Canadians
There are many definitions of dialogue. For us, a dialogue is a collaborative process that seeks to find common ground among participants.It offers in-depth discussion on policy issues that allows underlying values to surface.
Since Exploring Canadian Values, the pioneering work begun by our Family Network, CPRN has undertaken several public dialogue projects. The goal of public dialogue is to engage people in an in-depth and focused discussion with each other and with policy makers on a given public policy issue. It explores citizens' ideas, feelings and values and gives them an opportunity to learn and make informed choices about policy questions. Here is a list of the dialogues we had conducted:CPRN's 10th Anniversary Project - National Dialogue and Summit for Young Canadians 
Citizens' Dialogue on Sharing Public Funds for a Better Canada
