Mission

The overall mission of the Canadian Literature Centre / Centre de littérature canadienne is to engage in scholarship, foster research, and promote public interest in Canadian literature, with a view to enhancing an understanding of Canadian literature’s richness and diversity.

Our goals are:

  1. To conduct, facilitate, and promote scholarship relating to Canadian literature in its great diversity and plurality, and to establish cross-cultural and interdisciplinary contacts and exchanges among authors, students, scholars, translators, and reading communities of what are truly multiple Canadian literatures.
  2. To create an intellectual environment favourable to the pursuit of research in English and French and to disseminate research results as widely as possible in Canada and internationally in either of these two languages.
