There is renewed discussion and excitement over the concept of a Guaranteed Annual Income - both the left and the right on the Canadian political spectrum have vigorously debated the merits and limitations of such a government safety net that would provide a basic standard living income to all citizens. Current pilot studies across the world, including Ontario, are exploring the feasibility of a Guaranteed Annual Income. Come join Senator Hugh Segal and local leaders Dr. Mandy Raining Bird and Dr. Pierre Stevens to build our understanding of the local, national and international contexts of this important issue.

Lloyd Shaw was an outstanding community leader who had a strong commitment to service in the public interest. The Lloyd Shaw Lecture in Public Affairs will provide a regular opportunity to examine and contribute to the debate on an important public issue, and to do so in a manner that sheds light on the subject from the vantage point of public interest. It will reinforce the idea of the university as an institution that can bring people from dierent walks of life together in an educational setting where they can discuss, learn and contribute in a multi-partisan manner.
