Johnson - Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

The Johhnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy is the centre for advanced education, research and training in policy and administration in the province of Saskatchewan. Located on two university campuses – the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan – the school is a source of respected policy advice and commentary. With academic backgrounds such as political science, economics, sociology, geography, law and education, the school’s faculty members train graduate students in an interdisciplinary environment, educate the public on policy matters, and improve the knowledge base from which policymakers draw.

The Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy incorporates 2 specialized programs:

  • The objectives for the Centre for the Study of Co-Operatives are:
    • to develop and offer university courses that provide an understanding of co-operative theory, principles, development, structures, and legislation
    • to undertake original research into co-operatives
    • to publish co-operative research by Centre staff and other researchers
    • to maintain a Resource Centre of co-operative materials that supports the Centre’s teaching and research functions.


  • International Centre for Northern Governance and Development (ICNGD), whose mission and mandate concentrates on the Circumpolar North and its relationship to Northern Saskatchewan. With an emphasis on innovation, the goal of the newly formed International Centre for Northern Governance and Development (ICNGD) is to further research, graduate training, and capacity building around the issues of governance and development – economy, environment, social and health – in partnership with northern and Aboriginal communities, industry, and government.
