2011 Theme: Canada’s International Image
The theme for the 2011 conference is “Canada’s International Image. “As a democratic nation, how can Canada strengthen its international presence to foster global dialogue of social change? By exploring Canada’s image both at home and abroad and reflecting on past and present issues that have put Canada in the spotlight, we can gain understanding of our position within the international realm. Through these perspectives and as Canadian global citizens we can create positive actions that reflect the values and the diverse character of our nation.
