Nicole Latulippe
Assistant Professor


Nicole joined the University of Toronto Scarborough’s departments of Human Geography and Physical and Environmental Sciences in 2018. Her research focus includes Indigenous (Anishinabek) systems of knowledge, governance, and law as they relate to the environment (water, fisheries, land management, environmental justice). She is developing an interest in Indigenous placemaking in urban settings. Prior to joining UTSC, Nicole worked in First Nations political advocacy for the Union of Ontario Indians (Anishinabek Nation) on the implementation of recommendations from the Ipperwash Inquiry. She was also Research Associate in Indigenous Law, Justice, and Research Theory and Practice at York University.

Nicole’s research practice is community-based and draws on Indigenous and critical qualitative Western research methodologies. Outreach and knowledge mobilization within both academic and public spheres are key. Nicole’s work is published in international Indigenous scholarly journals and she writes for Anishinabek News and other community-based outlets. Nicole’s research and teaching program contributes to scholarly and policy oriented conversations relevant to Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Canada and abroad.
