Coordination & Operations Committee

The Coordination and Operations Committee (COC) is chaired by the Project Director and includes the four Cluster Co-Leads (two academic and two ESPO) from each research cluster as well as representatives from IRCC and Statistics Canada. The COC is the decision-making body that oversees all research and operational activities of the Coalition.

Dr. Michael Ungar

Michael Ungar, Ph.D. is the founder and Director of the Resilience Research Centre at Dalhousie University. His ground-breaking work as a family therapist and resilience researcher is recognized around the world, with much of that work focused on the resilience of marginalized children and families, and adult populations experiencing mental health challenges at home and in the workplace. Dr. Ungar has provided consultation and training to Fortune 500 companies like Unilever and Cigna, NGOs such as Save The Children and the Red Cross, and educational institutions and government agencies on five continents. He is routinely called upon by thought leaders such as the Boston Consulting Group and Canvas8. His work emphasizes how to use the theory of resilience to increase both individual and institutional agility during crises, with numerous organizations having adopted his concept of resilience as a negotiated process that enhances wellbeing and social responsibility.

Dr. Ungar is the author of 16 books for lay and professional audiences, and over 200 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters. These include Change Your World: The Science of Resilience and the True Path to Success, a book for adults experiencing stress at work and at home, and I Still Love You: Nine Things Trouble Teens Need from their Parents. His blog, Nurturing Resilience, can be read on Psychology Today’s website.

Cluster Co-Leads

Each of our research clusters is chaired by two academic co-leads and two service provider co-leads. Co-leads work together to ensure that research produced in their cluster responds to the CYRRC’s mandate and the cluster’s research priorities.
