The Conference will be concurrent with the AGM and other Dominion meetings. There will be nine presentations and one tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. What follows are short articles on the content of the presentations and biographies of the presenters.
Eclectic and Inclusive: The Presentations of the 2022 UELAC Dominion Conference
When we began our search for suitable presentations we wanted to focus on Central Canada in the time of the early Loyalist period, 1783 -1820. We were looking for a balance of gender and content, from the military to the social and political. It is our hope that the nine presentations will edify, enlighten, and entertain.
NOTICE TO ALL UELAC MEMBERS:
All presentations in the 2022 Dominion Conference will be recorded and available for viewing for 72 hours. The sole exception is the tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which has a policy of not recording its "live" virtual tours.
