Heritage Ottawa 2018 Phillips Memorial Lecture

AND AFTER: The Consequences of World War 1

In commemoration of the centenary of the First World War,  joint Canada-France symposiums were held in the National Assembly in Paris last May and the Senate in Ottawa last November.  The symposiums gave participants the opportunity to reassess the defining impact the War of 1914-1918 had on Canada, its Parliament, its institutions, its people and its economy.  The outcome saw the publication of a book, Le Canada et la France dans la Grande Guerre, 1914-1918, co-edited by Senator Serge Joyal and military historian Serge Bernier.

Heritage Ottawa is honoured to welcome The Hon. Senator Serge Joyal as the 2018 Phillips Memorial Lecture speaker who will be sharing the transformative effects the Great War had on all levels of society, which still resonate to this day.


Senator Serge Joyal is the author/editor of numerous articles and books on Parliamentary and constitutional law as well as Canadian history.  He has actively campaigned for the protection of cultural heritage and for the improvement of urban life.  Senator Joyal is an Honourary Trustee of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), past-president of the Société des musées québecois, and former director of the Canadian Museums Association.  For Senator Joyal's full biography, click here.

The Lecture is free and there is no need to pre-register.

The annual Phillips Memorial Lecture honours the memory of Bob and Mary Anne Phillips, co-founders of Heritage Ottawa which began in 1967 as the Heritage Committee of "A Capital for Canadians".
