A Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation

Une célébration du 150e anniversaire de la Confédération Canadienne

On this historic anniversary, the British Association for Canadian Studies (BACS) 42nd annual conference was held on 20-22 April 2017. The conference took place at Canada House on Trafalgar Square, London, UK. Canada House is a beautifully restored heritage building that now houses an impressive collection of Canadian art and design. The conference was a tremendous success and showcased the wonderful work that is being done in Canadian Studies in the UK but also internationally!
