Welcome to a celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the 1951 U.N. Refugee Convention and Canada’s role in refugee  protection.  It will be a sweet-and-sour evening of high drama, low humour and serious talk about Canadian refugee policy.  Come join actors, professors, refugees, refugee lawyers, and special guest Furio De Angelis for a night of drama, debate, testimonials, audience quizzes and too many surprises to count.

Presented by The Refugee Forum and The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers.
