Laurier’s Yellowknife research office, which it has maintained since 2017, is a vital hub for its cold regions research and for its longstanding partnership with the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT). A year-round physical presence in the territorial capital allows Laurier to meet regularly with GNWT and other partners and develop strong working relationships with community members and organizations across the Northwest Territories.

The Laurier Yellowknife research office is located in the Scotia Centre in downtown Yellowknife, in Chief Drygeese territory. Yellowknife is the traditional land of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, and the homeland of the North Slave Métis. The Laurier office is home to several year-round staff. It provides temporary workspace to Laurier faculty and staff with research projects in the North, as well as students who travel to Yellowknife to complete field research. The office also offers support and space to researchers from partner institutions and manages access to research equipment stored in a nearby warehouse.

Inspired Research. REAL IMPACT.

Laurier researchers are collaborating with northern governments and communities to tackle urgent challenges in Canada's North.
