Labrador at the Front Lines of Climate Change
Temperature increases, sea ice changes, melting permafrost - these are just some of the environmental changes already happening in Labrador as a result of climate change. For a region with a population so connected to the land, these changes will have tremendous impacts on the health, wellbeing and livelihood of the people who live there.

Join the Harris Centre as we hear from panelists and Labradorians, Derrick Pottle, Abigail Poole and Stanley Oliver, alongside moderator Dr. Ashlee Cunsolo.

Harris Centre-West White Rose Employment Diversity Research Fund
Natural resource developments are drivers of economic activity and employment in NL.
However, segments of the population continue to be under-represented in these sectors and research is needed to better understand how to grow the pool of diverse candidates for employment.

Share your ideas and insights on what questions need answers and what projects could help.

Muskrat Falls vs. Icelandic Banking Sector
Iceland and Newfoundland and Labrador both faced a moment of financial reckoning in their recent histories, but the policy and governance approach in each case was vastly different.

Prof. Mark Stoddart, Dr. Ásthildur Elva Bernharðsdóttir, and Dr. Cole Atlin joined the Harris Centre's Dr. Rob Greenwood to talk about Prof. Stoddart and Dr. Atlin's recent report on this topic, and to discuss the ways these two places chose to respond to their crises--and why understanding those responses matters.
Rural Routes Podcast
Season 3, Episode 12:
Along The Baccalieu Trail
In this episode, Bojan talks to Dale Jarvis (Intangible Cultural Heritage Officer for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and research associate at the Folklore Department at Memorial University) and Natalie Dignam (a researcher and a broadcaster based in St. John's).
