The Conversation Canada

Research Office

The Conversation Canada launched in June 2017 with The University of Winnipeg joining as a founding partner. It is a website devoted to sharing timely academic analysis and commentary based on research, evidence and insights generated by Canadian universities.

As a new national non-profit organization, The Conversation Canada seeks to rectify a key challenge: a significant portion of scholarly knowledge remains relatively hidden in academic journals and is not available to the broader public.

The Conversation model is based on fostering the broadest circulation of content and amplifying the impact of ideas and research.

All articles are free to republish by the media.
