Alain-G. Gagnon to head the CAP-CF at UQAM

Congratulations to 2010 Foundation fellow Alain-G. Gagnon, who will head the Centre d’analyse politique sur la constitution et le fédéralisme (CAP-CF) (information in French only) created on 12 March 2018 at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). The first of its kind in Canada, the creation of the CAP-CF is part of Gagnon's third term (2017-2024) as Canada Research Chair in Quebec and Canadian Studies. Gagnon asserted that "the constitutional silence characterizing the Canadian federation cannot be healthy for the establishment of a fair democracy," and that it was accordingly necessary to mobilize researchers and affirm the value of a Quebec perspective on research in Canadian federalism.


Alain-G. Gagnon is a 2010 Foundation fellow and a full professor of political science at UQAM, and he has held the Canada Research Chair in Quebec and Canadian Studies since 2003. Read UQAM’s press release here.
