Institute of Urban Studies


Partners

The Institute focuses on inner-city, housing, Indigenous, and urban development issues and frequently partners with government, the private sector, and community-based organizations and acts in partnership with these organizations to effect positive urban change. Over the last half-century the Institute has partnered with hundreds of Community Organizations, Service Providers, Academics, Consultants, and Governments in pursuing our research. We would like to dedicate this space to these ongoing collaborations and partnerships that have resulted in a rich reserve of knowledge.

Two organizations with whom we have worked with on multiple projects recently are highlighted below: the Rural Development Institute at Brandon University, and the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg.
