A Bold Vision*

One hundred and fifty years ago, 23 men met for the Charlottetown Conference that led to Canadian Confederation. Visions of Canada began before them and continue since. The women's organizations that planned the Bold Vision event want to celebrate the historic accomplishments of the Charlottetown Conference and acknowledge that in 1864 the voices and experiences of women, Aboriginal peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, and many more were excluded from the formal discussions.

We asked what would a vision for Canada look like that includes the voices and experiences of women from across Canada? A Bold Vision includes an anthology and a women's leadership conference. On the final day of the conference, members of the public will have a unique opportunity to attend a historic public session with the 23 visionaries.
Join twenty-three Canadian women from every province and territory, leaders in many fields - from human rights to climate change, from business law to rocket science as they share their collective vision for the country. They will share their unique ideas about how that vision can be achieved, drawn from their personal vision papers, their conference experience and interaction with other visionaries.

You can expect to hear audacious imagination, seriousness and hope as the 23 diverse women visionaries set forth their visions for the next 150 years - to include peace, friendship, reconciliation, justice, equality, equity, solidarity, community, collaboration, good governance, and more.

This event will also formally launch A Bold Vision anthology, a collection of essays, interviews, poems and artwork. Books will be on sale for $22.95+tax.
