THEME:

The inaugural Queen’s Conference on Public Policy will provide an opportunity for graduate students from across Canada to engage with peers, policy-leaders and academics in examining issues with pertinent implications for Canada’s public policy.  

Featuring student panels, professional speakers and a keynote address, this year’s conference aims to bring a multidisciplinary approach to the analysis of global population growth and its implications on public policy.

7 Billion People: Implications for Canadian Public Policy will address the population milestone that is increasingly inciting discussion on pressing environmental, health, cultural and security issues. Join us on April 14thto be part of the conversation.

The organizers are most grateful to Queen’s School of Policy Studies for sponsoring this event.
