Transcontinental Town Hall: Northern development in Australia and Canada
The School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) is delighted to invite you to a special event: 'Transcontinental Town Hall: Northern development in Australia and Canada'.
Lack of infrastructure, weather extremes, population density, and geopolitical strategic significance are similar characteristics shared by the northern regions of our two countries. A vast store of expertise and knowledge could and should be shared to contribute to securing a safe and prosperous future for both the Australian and Canadian north. Our speakers will provide a comprehensive overview of the similarities in the policy challenges facing both northern Australia and Canada.
This event will feature a keynote address from His Excellency Mr. Scott Ryan, Australia's High Commissioner to Canada; and His Excellency Mr. Mark Glauser, Canada’s High Commissioner to Australia, followed by several brief mini-lectures presented by subject matter experts from both Australia and Canada, and a panel discussion moderated by Canadian Senator Vernon White.
We are pleased to invite you to this exclusive in-person event on Tuesday, June 7 at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary, AB from 4:30-6:00 PM MST. We will be joined virtually by speakers in Canberra, Australia, and the panel presentation will feature speakers in both countries.
