Here to build a better future

Simon Fraser University is stepping up to build a sustainable, resilient and inclusive economic recovery. Our faculty, students and staff are engaged with people and organizations in Canada and around the world to drive innovation, improve public health, fight climate change, promote democracy, and create exciting new economic opportunities. In these, and so many other ways, we’re here to help shape a better future for everyone.

We work with First Nations to advance health and wellness. BC First Nations Health Authority Chair and health sciences professor Jeff Reading promotes Indigenous health and wellness.

We care about the places and lands that sustain us. Professor of Indigenous Business Dara Kelly leads research on the concept of Indigenous wellbeing and quality of life. Respecting Indigenous knowledges, re-connecting to lands and territories and focusing on community-informed climate innovation is key to building a more sustainable world for future generations.

We foster entrepreneurial innovation. Indigenous Business Leadership Program director Alexia McKinnon works with Indigenous peoples and communities to support economic innovation.
