Director's Note


Alan Durston

Interim Director (September 2016 - July 2017)

I am thrilled to begin my term as Acting Director, and, at the same time, to inaugurate our new website, fruit of the efforts of Director Carlota McAllister and Camila Bonifaz, our Coordinator. As CERLAC approaches its 40th anniversary in 2018, we are mindful of its tradition as Canada’s preeminent centre for research on Latin America and the Caribbean, and of the need to move forward with a process of institutional renewal aimed at serving as broad a community as possible. We invite all those interested in Latin America and the Caribbean to renew or initiate a relationship with CERLAC --  browse the website, write or call us, or drop by our offices on the 8th floor of the Kaneff Tower. I look forward to hearing from you.
