The research groups of the Observatory of Black Communities of Quebec are mandated to work in concert with the researchers in charge of leading the groups, to identify issues and problems to be prioritized, and to contribute to the design and implementation of related research.

These entities aim to pool and enhance the diverse experience, knowledge, and expertise of Black community members across Quebec.
