Welcome to the Labrador Institute!  

We are a division of Memorial University located in Labrador. The Labrador Institute is a leading centre of research, education, policy, and outreach by and for the North. The Labrador Institute was established by Memorial University to stimulate, coordinate, and support major University projects and programs and to expand the Labrador knowledge base. It is our hope that these activities will facilitate the educational aspirations, research requirements, and the socio-cultural well-being of the people of Labrador.

The School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies

In July 2020, Memorial established the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies (SASS), its first academic unit based in Labrador.

The Labrador Institute is currently working with key partners in Labrador, Memorial University, and throughout the North to lead the development of SASS, oversee the creation of interdisciplinary undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programming, and work towards the establishment of the Labrador campus of Memorial University, including infrastructure design and curriculum development.

Stay tuned as we undergo the transition and transformation to becoming a Labrador Campus that will support the educational aspirations of people in Labrador and the North!
