Event Details

The University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University are hosting a three-part lecture series for Canada 150, in partnership with the Waterloo Public Library and The City of Waterloo. As we recognize and celebrate 150 years of Confederation, this lecture series explores significant periods of Canadian history and their influence on Canada today. 

This talk will focus on how our country's 150th anniversary has been a year of both celebration and debate about our collective and contested past. Four professors from Laurier and Waterloo will bring to light some of the hidden figures and narratives, including those of First Nations, gender struggles, and migration/refugee experiences. 


Parking | Parking is available free of charge, at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) (see directions below).
