The York Centre for Public Policy & Law was established in 2008 to foster and facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary research in the field of public policy and law among York University's faculty and students. Its goal is to assist with the research needs of the broader community, including government and public policy makers, non-governmental organizations, and social movements in Canada. It provides accurate and reliable research on important legal and public policy issues and makes it available to federal, provincial and municipal policy-makers.
