About Us

The Labrador Institute is a leading centre of research, education, outreach, and policy, by and for the North. As a division of Memorial University, the Labrador Institute is one of the few university-based units in Canada dedicated solely to the needs and priorities of the North. For over 40 years, the Labrador Institute has been committed to Northern-led, Northern-focused, and Northern-inspired research and education, and works to support the educational aspirations, research priorities, and socio-cultural wellbeing of people in Labrador and throughout the North. Since the Labrador Institute is situated on the homelands of the Innu and Inuit, the Institute also has a special obligation to the Indigenous peoples of the region and works in partnership on Indigenous-driven research and education initiatives.
