Our edge in Indigenous research

Integral to the restoration of Indigenous law to its place alongside Canadian common law, Dr. John Borrows, Killam award-winner and Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law, honours living legal traditions by bringing the past into the present. Drawing upon natural law, he’s inspired by his spectacular community, Neyaashiinigmiing (Cape Croker on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario).

Her research creates new understanding of the impact of climate change on the health of marine ecosystems and food production.
