The Conference Dinner will be held on Saturday, June 26 at the Harbourfront Community Centre. The Harbourfront Community Centre is a focal point for the new mixed-use developments on Toronto’s western waterfront.

Dress casually and join us for great food and conversation. Afterwards, stroll eastwards along the waterfront, stopping at the nearby Toronto Music Garden, designed by cellist Yo Yo Ma and designer Julie Moir Messervy. From here continue to the Harbourfront Centre, a lively area of theatre, dance and film. During this weekend, the Centre is featuring Ibutsa: RememberingRwanda, a weekend of commemoration, reflection and affirmation. This evening there is a gala festival of Rwandan music, song and dance. Also, the annual festival of fireworks should be visible from the waterfront!

The Harbourfront Community Centre is a short twenty-minute walk from Metro Hall. Exit the John Street entrance to Metro Hall, turn left, walk south alongside the Skydome and under the Gardner Expressway. At Queens Quay, turn right and continue to the Harbourfront Community Centre (627 Queens Quay West). Those who don’t wish to walk can take the Spadina streetcar from King Street south to Queens Quay, and walk a short distance west to the Community Centre.
