The Institute of Urban Studies is an independent research arm of the University of Winnipeg. Since 1969 IUS has been both an academic and an applied research centre, committed to examining urban development issues in a broad, non-partisan manner. The Institute examines inner city, environmental, Aboriginal and community development issues. In addition to its ongoing involvement in research, IUS brings in visiting scholars, hosts workshops, seminars and conferences, and acts in partnership with other organizations in the community to effect positive change.

The Institute of Urban Studies has been producing reports and publications since 1969. A complete collection of public reports is housed at the Institute of Urban Studies Library. Many reports are also available to download from our archive at the IUS WinnSpace community or by clicking on the archive by topic and archive by date sidebars.

Areas of expertise include: Housing & homelessness; neighbourhood & demographic change; program evaluation; urban Aboriginal issues; municipal government; policy analysis; social policy; and sustainable urban development.
