“My work at the BMIG saw my professor include me in all kinds of research, including a research trip to the US Naval archives in Washington DC. I am so grateful for the interesting job experience and unforgettable opportunity to travel. The experience I gained not only benefited me professionally but also enhanced my academic success.”

Samantha Cussen ’18

“My work with BMIG publications gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge outside of the classroom setting, building administrative, research, and project management skills. It’s also allowed me to meet several influential figures, including the Right Honorable Brian Mulroney himself.”

Chris Yurris

“The opportunities provided by the Institute have been great; I’ve tackled topics varying from geopolitical strategy  to the revision of important historical treaties. My professors’ expertise has been a significant resource, helping me to  understand the complexity and significance of the Arctic, while refining my writing and analytical skills. I am confident the work carried out will benefit my future studies and career.”
