Canada’s Constitutional and Governance Challenges After 150 Years

August 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am – August 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Project Leads: Donald Ipperciel & Francis Garon
Event date/time: September 29 - 30
Event location: Glendon Campus

In the context of the 150th anniversary of Canada, Glendon will organize a conference that will bring together 40 academics, practitioners, activists, and students around the evolution of Canada’s constitutional practices and conventions. More precisely, the conference will be organized around three main themes: 1) foundational values and rights, 2) democracy and institutions, and 3) policy-making and policy issues. The idea is to explore, for each theme, the practices and the conventions that have defined the Canadian political experience throughout its history, and to question if they are still relevant for today’s issues and context.
