Research conducted by the Indigenous Land Management Institute is diverse, both thematically and geographically. Current projects extend from the prairies of southern Saskatchewan to the Arctic of Nunavut, with many sites in between. Our researchers are working in the areas of forest management, fisheries, food security, wildlife harvesting, agricultural policy, and community economic development. Examples of some of our current projects include:

  • Cross-Border Dimensions of Vuntut Gwich’in Food Security

  • Examining the Conditions that Lead to Sustained Economic Growth for Saskatchewan First Nations
