Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum

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 crowdfunding of the Institute for Knowledge Mobilization – who is now the host and organizer of the Forum.

The theme for 2018 Forum is Mobilizing Evidence for Human Rights and the Social Development Goals. The venue is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
