Welcome to the Canada-U.S. Institute. Established by Western University in 2010, the Canada-U.S. Institute is the first interdisciplinary think tank in Canada devoted exclusively to studying our country's relationship with the United States.  Supported by three research centres: The Centre for American Studies, The Canada-U.S. Law Institute, and the Lawrence National Centre for Policy and Management, and five faculties: Social Science, Arts and Humanities, Information and Media Studies, Law, and the Richard Ivey School of Business, the primary objective of the Institute is to provide timely and policy-relevant research and analysis on the political. economic, historical, legal, and cultural dimensions of the Canada-U.S. relationship.
