PFC Symposium 2017

Listen. Learn. Act.
The Opportunities for Canadian Philanthropy

October 17, 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm and
October 18, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Omni Hotel, Montréal

PFC’s biennial symposium provides philanthropic leaders with a unique opportunity to learn from and exchange with colleagues from across the country. The 2017 PFC symposium will be held in Montréal, Québec at the Omni Hotel on October 17-18.

Through roundtable discussions, interactive breakout sessions and panel conversations, the symposium will bring together foundations leaders and funders from across Canada. Some of the questions we will discuss:

  • How can Canadian philanthropy listen more effectively to our community partners?
  • How do we hear the voices of those most affected by injustice in our community?
  • How do we question our own assumptions and overcome imbalances in power and privilege?
  • And how do we find and share what works in community?

Registration will open May 15, 2017
