Glendon Grads Address Canada@150

Videos of Conference Speakers

In September 2017, some of our most accomplished alumni came back to Glendon to offer a mix of observations, best wishes, predictions and advice to Canada during its 150th year. The conversations of the day followed the tradition of other Glendon Conferences such as the Quebec: Year Eight in 1967, the Last Lecture of Your Life in 1972, the millennium lectures in 2000. Our presenters included political and corporate leaders, diplomats, educators, commentators, social activists and diversity, equity and homelessness advocates.
