Bishop’s University has received $471 000 in financial support over three years to organize the Bishop’s Forum. The event, which runs until August 18, is aimed at English-speaking Secondary V, college and university students. It is focusing on the themes of citizenship, community involvement, philanthropy, the environment, the political system, the media, entrepreneurship, the social economy, and parliamentary committees. It falls within the scope of the key objective of The 2030 Québec Youth Policy focusing on citizenship to encourage a commitment by young people to culture, the community and society.
