Founded in 2000 by John Ralston Saul, the Institute for Canadian Citizenship’s (ICC) LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium is a national event that explores citizenship, belonging and the public good with leading Canadian and international thinkers. It challenges the audience to think about Canada’s big picture by inviting them to add their voice to post-lecture roundtable discussions with the speaker and ICC founders and co-chairs, Saul and the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson. Once again, the ICC has partnered with the Stratford Festival to present the 12th LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium featuring Robert Lepage, cutting-edge creator and recipient of The Glenn Gould Prize. The Symposium will take place this fall on Saturday, October 18 in Toronto; tickets are now on sale, visit lafontaine-baldwin.com.
