What are collaborative communities?

Partnership collaborative communities are secure, password-protected sites on hub.cancerstrategy.ca that allow professionals working in cancer control across the country to communicate, share ideas, and collaborate on projects.

What is the Partnership Hub community?

The Partnership Hub is a large collaborative community managed by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) and is the central access point to all other communities, as well as to the Partnership’s collaborative spaces.

How does it work?

  • People or organizations can make a request to the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer to get access to and build a collaborative community.
  • Community administrators are designated by the group. They are responsible for managing member enrollment and the structure and content of their communities. Support materials for setting up a community are provided by the Partnership.
  • A community can also have spaces within it so that a large membership group can all belong to the community and different members can belong to different spaces.

Who can join the community?

  • Membership is determined on a case-by-case basis by the community administrator. The eligible members could be a small project team or a very large group.
  • All eligible members will have access to the Partnership Hub.

Who can set up communities?

  • The Partnership is interested in hearing from all types of groups from across the Canadian cancer control community.
