The Centre of Canadian Studies is celebrating 40 years of research at the University of Edinburgh. It is the longest running Centre outside Canada. Through those years the Centre has established itself as the leading centre for research on Canada and Quebec in the UK. The Centre provides a forum for researchers from across the University, however, its research focus lies primarily in the social sciences, in Politics and International Relatoins, Sociology, Social Anthropology and Social Policy. It enjoys excellent relations with the Canadian High Commission and the Délégation Générale du Québec.
