2021/2022 VIRTUAL SEASON
The Canadian Club of London was founded in 1906 and has continued unabated through two world wars, the cold war, depressions, recessions, epidemics and many other seismic events. No surprise then that Covid-19 will not interrupt our 115-year tradition.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am excited to announce the Canadian Club of London is planning ten monthly virtual speaker events from September 2021 to June 2022. Watch for our 2021/2022 Program Schedule.
We are also pleased to announce a new and important relationship with Huron University College. As our Official Season Sponsor and Exclusive Educational Partner, Huron will be hosting each of the virtual events through online platforms and will provide support for the delivery of the sessions to ensure a continued quality experience for our members. The Canadian Club of London is honoured to partner with Huron University College and wish to express our sincere appreciation for graciously offering their services to ensure we continue delivering engaging and insightful speakers that celebrate and explore all things Canadian.

This past season marked a sea change for The Canadian Club of London. By adopting a virtual model, we had the great fortune to secure exceptional Canadians, currently based in all corners of North America, to present virtually to our membership their fascinating stories. Our virtual model has also enabled a greater cross-section of our community to attend on a regular basis, by simply having to sit down for an hour in front of the screen of their choice. Whether from the comfort of their living room, convenience of their desk, or in a classroom setting, our members came away with a greater appreciation for Canada; it’s successes and challenges. Our membership has swelled to include everyone from grade school and post-secondary students, to Canadians from all walks of life. And for the first time, we have new members connecting each month from all across the continent. While we all yearn for the day when we can again meet in person, The Canadian Club of London is pleased to continue its proud tradition, virtually, with the continued support of Huron University College, our other partners and sponsors, and especially you, our members.
