The Douglas Coldwell Layton Foundation has established an annual lecture series at 5 major universities across Canada to help educate people about social democracy.

These lecture events are designed to inspire students and non-students alike towards finding solutions for today's challenges.

Each lecture given by an expert in their field focuses on a specific area where social democracy intersects with our modern society and how we can make a better world for everyone.

This brand new initiative helps fulfill Tommy Douglas' dream to make a significant impact in the education of Canadians.

We invite you to please support this innovative program with a donation.

Every contribution we receive from this donation page will be used in the production and promotion of the lecture series.

All donations are 100% eligible for generous tax credits.

We can't do it alone. Please make a donation now.

Thank you.
