Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP)
The Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP) program brings public health units together to develop and run research projects on issues of shared interest related to the Ontario Public Health Standards.
Working collaboratively on an LDCP helps connect students, academics, and organizations that are doing related work. Through LDCP, public health unit staff lead projects, strengthening their skills in research and project management, while ensuring that the results of these projects are directly relevant to the work of Ontario’s public health units.
