Canada into the Next 150 years: Re-imagining the People’s Constitution
As Canada moves to legalize cannabis for recreational purposes, public education is a public health priority requiring increased public investments in prevention programmes, research, and healthcare supports and services across the population. Citizen engagement with these issues to find our way forward together is critical.
Preceding the Royal Society of Canada’s Celebration of Excellence is an event hosted at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) by the College of New Scholars and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC. This event is being presented in connection with the upcoming Insurgence/Resurgence exhibit at the gallery.
Between 1945 and 1980, the Celebration of Excellence, formally known as the Annual General Meeting, of the RSC was hosted at least once in every province of Canada, at 25 universities from coast to coast. In 2013, the RSC resumed the practice of moving the AGM around the country, beginning with a visit to Banff, Alberta. Following many successful, cross-Canada events, the 2017 COE will take place in friendly Winnipeg, Manitoba.
