The “Heart of the City Speakers Series” provides a forum for exploring ideas that matter to the people who live and work in Toronto.  We seek to engage our neighbours through meaningful discussions relating to community, ethics, morality and spirituality.

Our 2018 Spring series included events covering international affairs, Canadian provincial politics and an evening of Wine & Canape pairings – a very diverse range!

Our 2018 Fall series featured Magus MacFarlane-Barrow, Chairman of the International Charity “Mary’s Meals”.  Magus discussed their ongoing efforts to provide meals to children attending schools in Africa and how this one act has increased attendance dramatically.

Our next evening focused on the “Development of TV and film in Canada” and the panel featured Miranda de Pencier, Amy Cameron and Tassie Cameron.

So far in 2019 the theme has been technology and how our rapidly changing world will impact us all.

Ron Deibert discussed “Cyber Insecurity” and how targeted espionage against civil society is a new threat to us all.

Janice Stein spoke about: “Rebordering the World” and how the frontier of global competition is no longer trade or investment but rather technology.

Please note:  These ticketed events take place in the Great Hall of St. Andrew’s and after the talks we offer a chance to share a glass of wine, enjoy some refreshments and to speak with the guests and fellow participants – so please plan to join us.

Our next event is scheduled for May 27th – more details to follow.
