The SAR Canada Section, comprising 20 university members, exists to promote the values, aims and activities of Scholars at Risk in Canada.
The SAR Canada Section was formally launched on June 22, 2012 at the University of Toronto’s Massey College by The Honourable Dr. Lloyd Axworthy, then President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Winnipeg. The launch of the Canadian Section represented the culmination of several years of partnership between Canadian higher education institutions and the Scholars at Risk Network.
In 2016, Canada was proud co-host of the 2016 Global Congress in Montreal.
The SAR Canada Section undertakes constant outreach, partnerships and joint activities, information about which you will find on this page.
