New Student Info - Fall 2022
Located just 25 miles (40km) south of the 49th parallel border between the United States and Canada, the Center and other Canada House programs are well-positioned to support impactful scholarship and learning about transboundary issues. Founded in 1971, the Center is one of the most well-established Canadian Studies programs in the United States. Since 1988 we have served as a US Department of Education National Resource Center on Canada, in consortium with the Canadian Studies Center at the University of Washington.
The Center for Canadian-American Studies at Western Washington University supports critical and interdisciplinary inquiry into the historical construction and modern constitution of Canada and its relationship with the United States. The Center places particular emphasis on the interaction of diverse identities and claims to belonging in northern North America. Together with our partner programs in Canada House, we specialize in teaching about the Salish Sea transboundary region and Francophone Canada, including French language instruction.
