Research Centres are dedicated to furthering knowledge and discourse on some of Canada's toughest challenges and greatest opportunities.
Each Research Centre is funded by multiple stakeholders, united in their mission for progress, who help support and define the research agenda for their Centre.
From clean energy and immigration to mental health, indigenous issues and more, our Centres enable us to broadly develop and disseminate research that informs decision-making.

“The Centre for the North is a positive force for constructive, evidence-based policy-making and societal change in northern Canada. It produces top quality research studies and stimulates open and transparent debate about the most pressing northern issues of our time.”
Dr. Ken Coates, Canada Research Chair in Regional Innovation, Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Saskatchewan
Energy and energy systems play a central role in Canada’s economy. They will also be an integral part of our transition to a clean growth economy. This centre supports the research and dialogue needed to address climate change without sacrificing economic growth and social well-being.
This collaborative research initiative provides a safe space for constructive dialogue on Northern issues. The centre embraces the North’s diversity and works to fill the knowledge gaps that challenge decision-making and policy development on Northern and Indigenous policy issues.
The success of Canada’s trade sector is critical to our economic growth and regional development. As the global trade context is increasingly challenging, the Global Commerce Centre analyzes emerging global shifts, identifies the challenges they may bring, and explores trade opportunities.
Canada needs global talent now more than ever—our 21stcentury prosperity depends on effectively recruiting human, social, and financial capital. This centre brings stakeholders together to enhance Canada’s immigration system.
Value-based healthcare is about putting patients first when designing and managing health systems. This research centre is dedicated to an evidence-based approach to building and expanding value-based healthcare approaches across Canada.
We believe strong workplace mental health is the cornerstone of employee engagement and productivity—and employers have a pivotal role to play. This centre was established to increase awareness and understanding of this issue through research, analysis and dialogue.
