To celebrate the upcoming Canadian Sesquicentennial, the Editorial Board of the Queen’s Policy Review (QPR) is proud to announce this special Policy Conference.  We will be discussing pressing policy issues that have, and will shape, Canada’s present and future. Both the conference and subsequent publication will be focused on the following two questions: 

  • ‘What are the policy challenges that have shaped and continue to impact the Canada of today?’
  • ‘What are the emerging challenges facing public policy in Canada; and how do we begin to develop solutions to these challenges?’

Admission is FREE but Pre-Registration is recommended.
