We are proud to support 6 degrees Toronto again this year in bringing the inclusion debate to the city through international speakers from politics and culture. Highlights include the 17th Lafontaine-Baldwin Lecture and the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship.

6 degrees is the global forum for inclusion. A project of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship, we bring people together from around the world, challenge assumptions, and find solutions and actions to counter growing divisions in society. 6 degrees Toronto 2019 will feature a citizenship ceremony, the 17th Lafontaine-Baldwin Lecture, the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship, and daily programing at the AGO bringing together thousands of engaged citizens and global leaders. The event runs from September 23–25 at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning, and Corus Quay.
