Abstract

FIRA is a pan-Canadian alliance dedicated to developing and sharing of knowledge focusing on father involvement. The FIRA community university research program (2003-2009) involved 8 universities and 35 community partners across Canada, directed by Kerry Daly and coordinated by Linda Hawkins at the Centre for Families, Work & Well-Being. Work included collaborating and sharing information with fathers and mothers, academics; social, health and other service providers; educators; employers and the business sector; community, professional and labour groups, government. Tracking a diverse set of products from the work was part of the original design for the project. This poster visually demonstrates what good reporting tools within a partnership can create. It is also important to note that partnership products were tracked as evidence of impacts. www.fira.ca
