This is a special year for the International College as 2020 marks the ICD Centennial Anniversary. In recognition of this milestone, the 2020 ICD Canada Centennial Gala is being held at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on April 4. ICD Canada would like to share the evening with colleagues from throughout Canada and other countries. The Gala will take place in Buhler Hall starting at 5:30 pm. The dress code for ICD guests is business or black tie optional.
The Museum takes one on a journey of inspiration unlike anything experienced before. It is the only museum in the world solely devoted to human rights awareness, education and the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The national museum rises from the prairies earth in Winnipeg at the Forks, where the Red and Assiniboine rivers meet on Aboriginal Treaty One Land – a historic meeting place for thousands of years.
