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.

"My work experience with the Border Policy Research Institute and educational background in Canadian-American Studies & Environmental Studies provided me with the perfect building blocks for my current position with Google Maps. My knowledge of Canadian history and geography directly translated to my placement on the Canada team, where I specialize on updating and maintaining the maps of British Columbia and the Yukon as a visual data specialist."
