McGill University’s McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) has received a $5M endowment from philanthropist Charles Bronfman to create the Conversations series. The annual series will feature conversations between Canadian and international experts about Canada’s opportunities, challenges, and role in the world. These conversations will cover fields such as economics, social policy, and government, and will be broadly accessible online for citizens, policy makers, and the media. “This gift is a game changer for MISC and a key contribution to McGill’s public engagement profile,” said MISC Director and McGill Professor Daniel Béland. “Mr Bronfman’s major and timely injection of support will allow us to enhance our presence and reach as large an audience as possible through media partnerships and other outreach initiatives.” McGill| Montreal Gazette| MSN (FR) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
