The CHILD Studies Team is located at the University of Calgary, on the traditional territory of the Treaty 7 peoples who include the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Stoney Nakoda (Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The land is also the traditional home to Metis Nation Region 3. We are grateful to be able work, live and recreate in these beautiful lands.

Students interested in studying in this exciting area will find valuable information on this site. Helpful material is also available for parents, educators, researchers, media and policy influencers. The website provides information on our funded and future studies.

Community involvement is important to the CHILD Program of research. One way we give back to the community is by giving presentations and workshops on topics related to our research.
