On March 26–28, 2010, in Montreal, leading academics and policy experts from Canada and around the world participated in “Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge,” a non-partisan event organized by the Liberal Party of Canada. The three-day event has been described as a chance for “some of Canada’s leading thinkers and doers to grapple with big issues facing our country.”

On March 28th, Robert Fowler, former Canadian Diplomat and the Special Envoy of UN Secretary-General to Niger, delivered the opening keynote address on the final day of the Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge conference. The title of Mr. Fowler’s address was “Africa in 2017, and Canada as Partner.”
