As a world-class research institute, the Prentice Institute will examine big-picture issues relating to global population changes within a broad historical framework, while also connecting local and regional changes with similar global trends.

The focus of the Institute will be to provide information and otherwise contribute to the development of policy options, to guide Canadians and their governments in addressing some of the difficult challenges facing the world. These challenges range from concerns about food security, water scarcity and irrigation, to public policy issues affecting Aboriginal peoples; medical implications and economic challenges associated with an aging population, including unsustainable pension programs.

It is anticipated that the Institute will partner with other national and international groups and institutes working on related matters, and that we will attract well-established scholars who have made major impacts in their fields of research.
