Although all in-person Speaker Series remain cancelled due to COVID-19, the Public Policy Speaker Series returns September 17 with an online mini-series on Canadian Federalism in 2020

**A Few Spots Available**

Join us for the September 17 to October 1 mini-series on Canadian Federalism in 2020.

As coordinator of the Public Policy Speaker Series for two years, Dr. Audrey Doerr drew on her scholarly expertise as a professor and her wide-ranging experience as a senior executive in several departments of the federal government to create a highly successful Public Policy Speaker Series. In March, she began her mini-series on Canadian Federalism but could not complete it because of the cancellation of in-person meetings. CALL is delighted that she will now offer all three lectures in the series online.
