Environmental Research Group

The Environmental Research Group is one of the research clusters of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies. This group brings together graduate students and faculty at York University studying aspects of the Canadian environment from a broad range of disciplinary perspectives including sciences, social sciences, humanities, fine arts, health, and engineering. We strive to provide a forum for researchers to share findings and explore key issues in environmental research.

Join an interdisciplinary and university-wide network of researchers interested in studying the Canadian environment.

  • Increase the exposure of your research within the York community, outside of your unit and Faculty
  • Participate in annual social and academic events to grow your network of colleagues with shared interests
  • Access student training opportunities
  • Receive preference for some awards managed by the Robarts Centre
  • Become part of a community of researchers without taking on additional service commitments
