McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of these lands and waters

The CRBS is committed to providing an inclusive, diverse, and equitable working environment for everyone affiliated with our research center.  In collaboration with the Fonds de Recherche du Québec, we have developped an EDI Action Plan and have established a Standing EDI Committee composed of both CRBS faculty and trainees. 

Please explore  the content of this website to find information on upcoming EDI activities and initiatives, annual EDI progress statements, a webform for submitting anonymous suggestions, and links to other EDI-themed resources.
