The Canada Lecture on Citizenship

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Event Details

From the establishment of the Dominion of Canada on July 1st 1867, with John A. Macdonald as its first prime minister, our country has been a project of citizenship. People worked together for the common good, long before Mackenzie King became Canada’s first official citizen in 1947. The Canada Lecture on Citizenship will reflect upon and celebrate what it means to be an active citizen of Canada in this transformative period in world history.

The Right Honourable Joe Clark, Canada’s 16th Prime Minister, is an elder statesman whose public and personal attributes have earned him the respect of Canadians. Mr. Clark was a world leader in the fight against apartheid, and a key figure in promoting Canadian initiatives on the world stage
