About The Walrus Talks

The Walrus Talks is a national series of public events produced by the charitable, non-profit Walrus Foundation as part of our educational mandate to provide forums for conversation on matters vital to Canadians. The Walrus Talks format features eight speakers for seven minutes each on various aspects of a theme. Eighty minutes of lively, thoughtful, inspiring, riveting, smart, new thinking from scientists, writers, performers, scholars, leaders of business and the arts. The Walrus Talks delivers fresh ideas and new ways of looking at big issues and aims for the audience to say "I never thought about it that way" when the event is over. The Walrus has no "wings". Our speakers are chosen to reflect a range of experience and viewpoints, but all with one thing in common - the desire for real conversation about issues that affect the future of Canada.

The Walrus Talks are recorded by our partners at eqhd and are available for viewing - each speaker individually or the entire Walrus Talks event - can be viewed on eqhd or at

The Walrus Talks in 2013 will be held in Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, and Toronto on themes including measuring performance, experimentation between science and art, urban sustainability, energy, building bridges, and philanthropy. The Walrus Talks 2013 will feature more than 100 speakers from all walks and from across the country. The Walrus Talks are sponsored by forward-thinking members of the private and public sectors who support a forum for the Canadian conversation and encourage dialogue on a full range of issues.
