The Center for Canadian American Studies, located in Canada House at Western Washington University, offers a comprehensive program for the study of Canada in the United States. In consortium with the Canadian Studies Center at the University of Washington, our Center is one of only two U.S. Department of Education designated National Resource Centers for the study of Canada in the United States.

We coordinate a multidisciplinary undergraduate program; organize seminars and symposia on cross-border issues of interest to both nations; promote research on Canadian topics in the social sciences and humanities; and conduct extensive outreach to K-12 and post-secondary educators as well as to the business and local community, media and cultural organizations.




The Center for Canadian-American Studies brings together faculty, students, and community members to encourage and support scholarship about Canada and Canada-US relations across disciplinary and regional boundaries.
