Academic Community and Research Groups

This section is dedicated to the academic organisations and research groups working on issues related to Canadian intelligence. While most of them are based in Canada, this is not a selection criterion and this section might actually include foreign institutions.

Entities such as universities, or any part therein, think tanks, and research centers are included in this section. Membership-based interest and discussion groups, such as associations and societies, are not included here as they can actually be found in the Associations section.
