Territorial Acknowledgement

The headquarters of the Institute for Research on Public Policy is located on the traditional, unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. Tiohtià:ke (Montreal) has long been a gathering place for many Indigenous Peoples. We honour their enduring connection to this land.

In our work as a think tank researching social and economic policy, and the nature of our federal community, we recognize that many policies have been and still are a source of harm to Indigenous communities across the country. Today, we are working to mobilize the knowledge, experiences, and voices of Indigenous Peoples through dedicated research, fellowships, and publications related to Indigenous realities and directly involving Indigenous Peoples.

Whenever possible, the IRPP is also pleased to offer office and meeting spaces for local Indigenous groups – please contact us at to learn more.
