AIA Canada Communities of Practice

At AIA Canada, every piece of research is verified and validated by a group of industry professionals to ensure that the data is valuable to our members and industry at large. This is achieved through the deployment of communities of practice which is put into action before the commencement of a research/knowledge project who steer and guide it to its completion.

What is a Community of Practice?

A Community of Practice (CoP) represents a group of professionals that have the expertise and willingness to work towards a common issue/s and find solutions. CoPs are voluntary in nature and consist of those who want to be involved in a particular project that has clear start and end dates. CoPs are a great way of developing social capital, nurturing new knowledge, stimulating discussion, and sharing knowledge.

What is required of a Community of Practice participant?

Participants share their expertise and provide direction at various stages of the research project and as requested. This includes providing feedback on data points, identifying knowledge and data gaps, and reviewing various drafts of the report/product, ensuring that the final products meet the needs of target audience.
