Preceding the Royal Society of Canada’s Celebration of Excellence is an event hosted at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) by the College of New Scholars and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC. This event is being presented in connection with the upcoming Insurgence/Resurgence exhibit at the gallery.
Between 1945 and 1980, the Celebration of Excellence, formally known as the Annual General Meeting, of the RSC was hosted at least once in every province of Canada, at 25 universities from coast to coast. In 2013, the RSC resumed the practice of moving the AGM around the country, beginning with a visit to Banff, Alberta. Following many successful, cross-Canada events, the 2017 COE will take place in friendly Winnipeg, Manitoba.
