Register now for our annual conference

Join us in Vancouver on 16-17 November 2016 at this year’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation conference! “Building community: Ideas for the future of citizenship and belonging” will experiment with ways to re-think and re-feel citizenship from a variety of points of view. From hand-picked provocateurs’ rapid-fire pitches of the most important trends to watch for, to participatory theatre and thoughtful dialogue, this conference will use mixed methods to get at some of the toughest questions about how we experience belonging today. Register before 17 October! +
