Institute for Social and Economic Research

The Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) operated between 1981 and 1986 as a unit within the Faculty of Arts.  Initiated with a grant from the then federal Department of Health and Welfare, ISER had two objectives:

  1. To rehabilitate the MINCOME Manitoba database, by formatting the data in research ready formats as well as prepare documentation to enable researchers across Canada to access and use the information.
  2. To support social sciences research in the Faculty of Arts and at the university.

During its five year existence ISER completed a range of activities.
