A Civic Leadership Institute for English-Speaking Youth


Michael Goldbloom, C.M.We are thrilled to be hosting the Bishop’s Forum this coming August. The Forum is a unique opportunity for young leaders in the English-speaking community from across the province to spend time immersed in the exciting and important conversation about the kind of province Quebec currently is and could possibly be. The central concept of this initiative is the idea that if young English-speaking Quebecers can wrap their imaginations around how the business of the Quebec’s major institutions is transacted, they will be better equipped to lead the change from which the whole province can benefit. In other words, through an exciting, enriching and interactive program, we are seeking to empower the next generation of young English-speaking leaders to build a smarter, richer, greener and more inclusive Quebec. So, to whomever is reading this message, please send the word out to young members of the English-speaking community that the Bishop’s Forum wants to hear from them this August.

Elysia Bryan-BaynesLeadership, networking, service. There is a strong desire in Quebec to engage with our communities and to explore the potential within our diverse society. The Forum is the ideal place for English-Speaking Quebecers to connect with like-minded people and to refine their sense of belonging to this unique place we call home. We are thankful to the wide array of political, economic and community leaders who share their time and knowledge with the participants.

I am honoured to work with Bishop’s Forum Founder, Principal Michael Goldbloom, in-coming Principal Sébastien Lebel-Grenier, and the team at Bishop’s University on this year’s Forum.

I look forward to the lively discussions on politics, technology, strategy, and service. And I look forward to meeting you all!
