SFU Morgan Centre for Labour Research

About the SFU Morgan Centre for Labour Research

The Department of Labour Studies at Simon Fraser University engages our communities in interdisciplinary research to explore the forces shaping work and employment today. 

The objectives of the SFU Morgan Centre for Labour Research are to:

  1. promote and undertake research in areas related to working people and their organizations in British Columbia, Canada and globally;
  2. facilitate links with labour unions and labour researchers in Canada and abroad;
  3. to generate and disseminate knowledge about the B.C. labour market, its regulation, and the issues facing workers in our province;
  4. facilitate links with, and undertake, community-based projects with labour-movement partners; and,
  5. provide an institutional home in FASS for researchers, post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students in the field of Labour Studies and related disciplines.

The Centre promotes research by bringing together the expertise of SFU faculty and other individuals, groups, and organizations, within and beyond the academic community, to engage in work that meets goals and objectives specified by and meaningful to workers and their organizations. The Centre also promotes collaborative research projects within the university.

The Members of the Labour Studies Program and the SFU Centre for Labour Research respectfully acknowledge that we live in Skwxwú7mesh territory, and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the shared, unceded territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Tsleil-Waututh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nations. The SFU Surrey campus is located on and serves many First Nations local to that community. These include the Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Qayqayt, and numerous Stó:lō Nations.
