Description

BPW Canada is celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights during its 46th Biennial Convention in our nation's capital, Ottawa.

In addition to the business portion of the Convention, an exciting program is being finalized which includes:

  • High Profile Speakers such as Chief Commissioner Marie-Claude Landry from the Canadian Human Rights Commission to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights during Friday Opening Ceremony and Senator Lillian Eva Dyck, First Female First Nations Senator of Canada at the Saturday Gala. Mayor Jim Watson will deliver welcome remarks at the Opening Ceremony.
  • Opening ceremony on Friday evening at 6:30 pm will be held off-site at a Canadian Heritage Landmark nearby.
  • Evening gala with entertainment on Saturday evening at 6:30 pm will be held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier with BPW International Representatives, leaders from government, business and civil society.
  • Pre-convention group tours of Parliament Hill on Friday (12 noon & 2 pm - East Block tours in two smaller groups; 1:30 pm Centre Block tour altogether; Space is limited and so we will book on a first come first served basis).
