Research at RCC

Research and evaluation projects are important to the services provided by RCC.  Research helps us learn new things and provide better care for our children and youth.  Program evaluations and quality improvement projects are done to make sure that we are doing the best things for our programs and services.  RCC research and evaluation projects are done through our new building, SSCY Centre (


A Research Coordinator position at RCC is funded by donations to the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation.  Our Research Coordinator helps RCC clinicians and therapists do research and program evaluations.  Our Research Coordinator also acts as the SSCY Centre Research Coordinator.


Participants in our research projects are children, youth and families who receive services through RCC.  Every research project is different, and it is up to families to decide if they want to participate.


The goals of research and evaluation at RCC and SSCY Centre are to:

  • learn more about issues that are important to our children, youth and families
  • improve care received through RCC and SSCY Centre
  • increase community participation
  • improve quality of life for our children, youth and families
