17 April 2012 to 18 April 2012

Ottawa, Ontario

2011 Trudeau Scholar Claris Harbon invites all Trudeau community members to take part in a conference that she is organizing with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS). Entitled "Checking Our Constitution@30: The Influence of the Canadian Constitution and the Charter of Rights on Legislation, Identities and Federalism", the conference is sponsored by ACS and the University of Ottawa. The idea is to have one or two panels of three to four speakers each--Trudeau scholars, fellows and mentors are all welcome--giving their unique perspective in order to create a multidisciplinary discussion on this vital subject.
