Gorsebrook Research Institute

Since 1982, the Gorsebrook Research Institute (GRI) for Atlantic Canada Studies at Saint Mary’s University (SMU) has been the regional hub for research and collaborative scholarship on Atlantic Canada. Our Atlantic Canada recognizes First Nation communities and their land sovereignty, the ethnic and cultural diversity of those who were settled as part of forced immigration and colonization, and those who are here by their own choice and agency. Our mandate is to provide an interdisciplinary research environment that facilitates exchanges and partnerships in ways that improve understandings of Atlantic Canada.
