Massey Lectures

The College, along with CBC and the House of Anansi Press, co-hosts the Massey Lectures, widely regarded as the most important public lectures in Canada. Established in 1961 by the CBC to honour the former Governor-General of Canada, the Right Honourable Vincent Massey, the College’s Founder and first Visitor, these annual lectures are given by a noted scholar or public figure. They are broadcast by the CBC from cities across Canada, and published at the same time by House of Anansi Press.

    While I appreciate the Massey Lectures online and on the radio every year, this past year's 2015 with Margaret MacMillan, was particularly interesting and educational! Thank you! Looking forward to 2016s and wondering if I may attend. Caroline
