Canadian Journal of Urban Research


The Canadian Journal of Urban Research (CJUR) is a multidisciplinary, scholarly journal dedicated to publishing articles that address a wide range of issues relevant to the field of urban studies. CJUR has been published by the Institute of Urban Studies, University of Winnipeg since 1992. CJUR welcomes papers focussing on urban theory and methodology, empirical research, problem and policy-oriented analyses, and cross-national comparative studies.

CJUR is financially supported by the Institute of Urban Studies and by subscriptions. In 2014, CJUR introduced a submission fee to help further reduce the increasing costs of operation. This fee, along with subscriptions will help ensure CJUR remains one of the few independent, urban scholarly journals in Canada. Please See our submission guidelines for an important notice regarding the application fee.

Communicating and reproducing of CJUR, in paper or electronic form, for non-profit educational institutions, is governed by fair dealing in Canada and fair use in the USA. All other communication and reproduction uses should be requested from the editor of CJUR.
