Abstract: In this study, our goals are to (i) describe the citizens' expectations in regards to their participation in the Faculty of Medicine of the Laval University's (FMED-UL) activities; (ii) describe the different community engagement activities happening in the Canadian faculties of medicine; (iii) identify the promising mechanisms for community engagement. In order to describe the citizens' expectations, we undertook a thematic analysis of the 10 citizen forums organized by the FMED-UL throughout the Québec province. The results were described using a conceptual framework developed from Consensus Mondial sur la Responsabilité Sociale des Facultés de Médecine and a study about the winning conditions of public and patient engagement and in research. In order to describe the community engagement activities in the 17 faculties of Canadian medicine and to identify promising mechanisms, we have conducted an environmental scan using the universities websites to identify:action plans mentioning citizen participation, the bodies responsible for social responsibility. Then,we have identified the community engagement activities carried out by the faculties. Our study shows that the citizens are ready to participate in FMED-UL activities. They would like to have an important and well-defined role in the faculty. They believe they are able to engage in identifying community needs, training of professionals, research, governance and partnership with other actors, and evaluation and continuous improvement process. Of the 17 Canadian Faculties of Medicine, 11 (65%) have strategic plans that mention community engagement; 8 (47%) have academic units responsible for social responsibility. However, the majority of the faculties' websites (94%) present community engagement activities. Learning through community engagement is used in several universities (NOSM, UofA, UdeM) and looks promising.
