Wilson Institute for Canadian History


The Wilson Institute has as its mission the rethinking of Canadian History within a globalization framework. This perspective involves studying the ways in which Canadians have contributed to and been influenced by transnational or supranational phenomena such as international migration, Diaspora politics, religious movements, changing conceptions of human rights, gender and civil society, popular culture, epidemics, wars, and global finance and trade, to take just a few examples.

The Wilson Institute for Canadian History and the L.R. Wilson Chair in Canadian History are supported by a generous donation from L.R. 'Red'Wilson (former Chancellor of McMaster University), and McMaster University.
