A committed parliamentarian and a great defender of democratic values and the French fact in Canada, Mauril Bélanger spent his career supporting minority groups and promoting the Franco-Ontarian community. Led by CIRCEM and thanks to the generous financial contribution of the Fondation Famille Bertrand, these lectures will focus on the major issues that Mr. Bélanger advocated for during his political career. For more information, visit our website.
