The Healthy Populations Institute (formerly the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre) conducts and facilitates health promotion research that informs policies and practices and contributes to the health and well-being of Canadians.  Their mission is to be a leading Atlantic centre for research, training and knowledge translation that promotes health and reduces health disparities.
The Resilience Research Centre (RRC) brings together leaders in the field of resilience research from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds. With partners across six continents, they employ methodologically diverse approaches to the study of how children, youth, and families cope with many different kinds of adversity. The RRC’s focus is the study of the social and physical ecologies that make resilience more likely to occur. The research they do is looking beyond individual factors to aspects of a young person’s family, neighbourhood, wider community, school, culture, and the political and economic forces that exert an influence on a child’s development in challenging contexts.

The Centre for Transformative Nursing and Health Research is the first nursing-led research centre in Atlantic Canada. The Centre’s research is focused on four key areas: the health needs of people; health workforce and health systems planning; marginalized populations and health equity; and knowledge translation.
