Vered Jewish Canadian Studies
The University of Ottawa’s Vered Jewish Canadian Studies Program is home to leading scholars in the field with a broad range of research interests in history, literature, cinema, music, Holocaust studies, and cultural studies. We offer exciting courses in a multidisciplinary environment that examine the Jewish Canadian experience from a variety of angles, including its history from colonial times to the present, its rich artistic traditions, its diverse religious life, and its Yiddish language and cultural heritage. Our courses allow students to explore the past and present of an ethnic and religious group that has shaped and been shaped by the Canadian experience for over 250 years. Our students have gone on to successful careers in government, education, and law, among others.
