Carleton’s Capital Advantage

This new collaboration gives you access to the best concentrated expertise on African Studies in Canada. Ottawa provides you with easy access to non-governmental organizations working in fields such as international development, human rights and the environment, as well as Federal Government departments such as Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development, Immigration and Citizenship and Export Development Canada. Rich holdings of archival material are available in the National Archives of Canada. Ottawa is also home to a growing number of African-Canadian and diaspora community groups, African diplomatic representatives and Africanist faculty at three universities.
