Doors: 6:00pm

Vancouver Playhouse
600 Hamilton Street at Dunsmuir, Vancouver

From President Trump to Brexit, we are witnessing dramatic global change. What impact will these shifts have on Canada? What role does Canada need to play on the world stage? What value can Canada offer to the world?

Join us for the official launch of SFU Public Square’s 2017 Community Summit, as we invite you to engage in a conversation about Canada's global relevance and how we can have the greatest impact internationally. Following the event, participants will be invited to continue the conversation by taking part in several dialogue circles at the Playhouse. Seating will be limited and offered on a first come, first served basis.

Roland Paris, University Research Chair in International Security and Governance, University of Ottawa and former Senior Advisor on Global Affairs and Defence to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Sheila Watt-Cloutier, Canadian Inuit activist, advisor to Canada's Ecofiscal Commission, former International Chair for the Inuit Circumpolar Council, and nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Senator Yuen Pau Woo, Independent Senator (BC), Senate of Canada                                                           
Shuvaloy Majumdar, Director of Policy, Office of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs (2011-15)
Laura Lynch, moderator, CBC News correspondent.
