Center for the Study of Canada

The Center for the Study of Canada at SUNY Plattsburgh, established in 1975, is dedicated to promoting and providing comprehensive scholarly professional development programs on Canada to academic, government and business constituents in the United States.

Recognized as a Title VI National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education since 1983, the center is at the forefront of innovative Canadian-focused curricula, research, and program initiatives. The center is proud to offer the most comprehensive undergraduate Canadian studies program in the U.S.

Outreach Programs

The center also sponsors and manages a rich variety of scholarly outreach programs including the Distinguished Canadian Address, the Quebec Winter Symposium, the Quebec Summer Seminar, Teaching Canada, and the Institute on Quebec Studies.

In October 2003, the Center, along with the Canadian studies program at the University of Vermont, initiated CONNECT — a program, as featured in the National Post, The Christian Science Monitor, Associated Press, Newsweek, and National Public Radio, designed to identify, recruit, orient and mentor new Canadianists for the American higher education community. The center also serves as the Secretariat of the American Council for Quebec Studies.
