Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum
June 10 -12, 2018 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
The Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum was founded in 2012 by Knowledge Mobilization Works – a consulting company founded by Peter Norman Levesque – to support a growing international community in knowledge mobilization. The success of the event and input from a broad range of people led to the creation and crowd funding of the Institute for Knowledge Mobilization – who is now the host and organizer of the Forum.
Whether we call what we do knowledge mobilization, knowledge transfer, dissemination, implementation science, or by the shorthand of K*- our work is gaining in both influence and demand. There are now significantly more professional training programs today and social media streams are filled with discussions and conversations about emerging practice and new methods for creating value from knowledge. Although KMb has seen significant growth over the past decade, the need to comprehensively and systematically address key questions as they evolve and change is growing.
By continuing to assemble practitioners, researchers, students, administrators, thought leaders, and others engaged in the art and science of knowledge mobilization, we can create: better practice; better policy and supports; more effective monitoring and evaluation systems; enhanced training processes; improved employment and job classification policies; more efficient implementation procedures; and further innovation, all with an ultimate goal of greater value for society. The Forum is organized as an opportunity to share what you know and to push the current boundaries of what we do as KMb professionals. This event provides access to some of the best minds and most creative practitioners in the field.

As is our tradition – we co-create the program with participants. We always ask for CONTRIBUTIONS to the program – not submissions.
We have received some fantastic contributions for workshops, presentations, posters, visuals, and open space discussions. Participants will receive a printed copy of the 2 documents linked above.
We will print a few copies of the extended version that includes the descriptions from contributors. These copies will be available to consult on-site. The extended version will also be made available online for those who want a personal copy.
I want to thank the committee of volunteers who reviewed the proposals. The adage “that many hands make light work” certainly proved its merit. See you all next week!
