EU Centres of Excellence in Canada

In 1998, the Commission launched an initiative to establish a network of EU Centres in universities providing information and education about the European Union. The objectives of the EU Centres are to

  • increase awareness in Canada about the political, economic and cultural importance of the EU-Canada relationship
  • promote greater understanding in Canada of the European Union and its policies
  • disseminate information and publicize EU views on issues of interest within regional communities

In Canada, the EU Commission now supports 3 such European Union Centres of Excellence in universities: Carleton University, Dalhousie University, and University of Alberta, in recognition of the high quality, variety and depth of their EU studies activities, which promote the study of the EU and EU-Canada relations through teaching programs, scholarly research and outreach activities in their local and regional communities.
