The ETRC was originally founded in 1982 by faculty members at Bishop’s University to further multidisciplinary research on the Eastern Townships through funding regional and community-based research projects, disseminating scholarly work in its own journal-Journal of the Eastern Townships Studies / Revue d’études des Cantons-de-l’Est (JETS/RECE), holding conferences and speaker forums, preserving archival collections and organizing exhibitions. Its original name Eastern Townships Research Centre reflected this academic oriented focus.
