Félix Mathieu holds a PhD in political science from the Université du Québec à Montréal (BA and MA from Université Laval). Before joining the Department of Political Science at The University of Winnipeg, where he teaches mostly in the field of Canadian politics, Mathieu was a postdoctoral fellow at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Catalonia, Spain).

With Dr. Dave Guénette, Mathieu has co-designed the Societal Culture Index (SCI), an analytical tool to study and compare the relative “institutional capacity” of minority nations evolving in multinational democracies.

His current research project focuses on Canadian politics and comparative federalism.
