The Canadian Digital Learning Research Association/Association Canadienne de Recherche sur la Formation en Ligne (CDLRA/ACRFL)

Since the 2017 survey, the team has established itself as a federal not-for profit association, called the Canadian Digital Learning Research Association/Association Canadienne de Recherche sur la Formation en Ligne (CDLRA/ACRFL). This makes it easier to apply for and accept funding specifically for the survey, and for other related projects. The Directors of the Association are Tricia Donovan, Denis Mayer and Tony Bates.
