About the Institute for the Study of Canada

About the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada

Established in 1994 thanks to an innovative agreement between the Bronfman family and McGill University, the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) runs an academic program at McGill University, supports an active research environment, and organizes a variety of large-scale, public events on matters of interest to Canadians, including MISC's Annual Conferences, which attract a great deal of attention from policy-makers, media, and the general public. While the Institute itself is non-partisan, MISC is no stranger to debate and controversy.

Canadian Studies

Canadian Studies provides students with a broad multidisciplinary view of the nature and development of Canada. Our programs include:

  • Minor Concentration

and are designed to encourage bilingualism, interdisciplinarity, and critical engagement. Our graduates go on to careers in the arts, government, the media, education, law, business, social service, and the university.

Indigenous Studies

Indigenous Studies

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada offers the following program in indigenous studies:

  • Minor Concentration in Indigenous Studies

The Minor in Indigenous Studies provides students with a broad, interdisciplinary view of key issues in the historical, social, and cultural dimensions of indigenous life in Canada. Core courses offered by the program will provide interdisciplinary treatments of indigenous life, and students will choose complementary courses from among those offered in other units at McGill. Topics addressed in courses include the history of indigenous populations in Canada, aboriginal art and culture, the experience of indigeneity and gender, and legacies of indigenous resistance to the Canadian state. The Minor in Indigenous Studies draws on expertise and experience in indigenous affairs located at McGill University and within the broader community.
