Elizabeth Fry Society publishes reports and documents relevant to our work to help identify strategies and solutions to adapt our structures and how we conduct our work.. Research and evaluation are a prevalent part of our day to day reviews that help us understand how the changing social and economic climate affects those affected by systemic criminalization. Not only does this inform our work, but helps us identify processes that will enhance the potential of those that access our services. In addition, we have collaborated on studies that have contributed to the collective work of the social sectors in Calgary. We are proud to be strong contributors towards social change.

Many students who do practicums at EFry have the opportunity to engage in research relevant to their educational path, but also provides EFry with the opportunity to learn from a student perspective along their learning journey. Below is a list of our reports and analysis:
