The Jane Finch Community Research Partnership (JFCRP) is a collaborative endeavor between York university and community members of the Jane Finch Community. The goal is to produce the Community Research Portal called Jane Finch Collections (JFC) that can be accessed by the Jane Finch community. https://janefinchresearch.ca/
For at least ten years, residents of the Jane Finch (JF) community in northwest Toronto have made concerted efforts to influence and gain access to the wide array of academic research that is conducted on and about their community (as opposed to with their community). This project aims to provide support in accessing this research, and in doing so, create new ways for community members to fight the stigmatization of their community by outside researchers (intentional or not), and allow community members to take leading roles in building more productive, ethical, informed and respectful relationships between academic researchers and local community members and organizations.
