Understanding Canada

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada supports an active research environment, and organizes a variety of large-scale, public events on matters of interest to Canadians.


MISC brings together both students and members of the public through various events, including our Mallory and Eakin Lectures, as well as our Annual Conference.

Academic Programs 

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada offers undergraduate programs in Canadian Studies, Quebec Studies and Indigenous Studies.

MISC still "open for business."

We wish to assure you that, as is the case for the rest of McGill (with many heartfelt thanks to our colleagues who continue to provide essential services on campus), even though we are not physically on campus, we are still very much present and available for whatever interests or needs you may have. Please use our email addresses on our Contacts page.
