The Centre aims to promote a better understanding of Canadian society, culture and environment within both the University and wider community. It works across disciplines, connecting research in Canada to broader international research agendas.
Based within the School of Natural and Built Environment, the Centre draws together research expertise across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences at Queen’s.
The Centre has dedicated office space for visiting academics and postgraduate students based in the School of Natural and Built Environment (Elmwood Building). This also includes a small library of Canadian resources donated by the Government of Canada and academic staff.
The University has a long established connection with Canada, reflecting both historical connections through the Irish diaspora and contemporary economic links. The University Library has built up one of the largest academic resources in the UK and Ireland to support teaching and research in Canadian Studies, with outstanding print and online collections on all aspects of Canadian life, culture and the environment across the domains of the arts, the humanities, the social sciences and sciences.
