Welcome to the SSRL

The Social Sciences Research Laboratories (SSRL) is a unique and leading network of nine research laboratories made possible by the combined support of the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Government of Saskatchewan and the University of Saskatchewan.

As a research support unit, the SSRL assists faculty, staff, students and community-based organizations undertaking research in the social sciences by providing access to specialized research infrastructure (computers, equipment and software) and research space (specific and multi-purpose), and providing access to research supports in the form of specialists with backgrounds and training in specific social science research methodologies (quantitative and survey research; qualitative research; experimental research; GIS and cartography; social network analysis; among many others).

Our Mission:

To provide shared research infrastructure and technical and administrative support to faculty, staff and students at the University of Saskatchewan and beyond, to facilitate the design, delivery and dissemination of cutting-edge social science research.
