A Message from the Chair of the GTLLI

All courses are sold out. No tickets are available.

 We are currently not accepting new accounts on the website.

The Demand for GTLLI tickets far exceeds the supply so it is not possible to give everyone all the tickets they desire.
Those 2016-17 members who could not get tickets this year will retain their membership status for another year.

The Founders’ Lecture in October is open to everyone and sales will start later in the summer (when we get the system fixed!)
The winter course on Religion will be offered on-line to everyone.
Both are open to non-members. Watch the website for details of these events.

Thank you for your patience as our volunteers work to deal with our problems.

Norm Pirk
Chair, GTLLI

2017 Founders’ Lecture Oct 10

Our 2017 speaker is The Honourable Michael H. Wilson.

BARCLAYS FP HIGH RES - Wilson

Michael Wilson, a retired parliamentarian, served in the Mulroney Conservative Cabinet for ten years.  His career as an accomplished businessman made him well qualified to become Minister of Finance and later Minister of Industry, Science and Technology.  Notably, he was successful in negotiating and creating the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1989.  From 2006 to 2009, he was Canada’s Ambassador to the United States.  Now as an active contributor to many professional and community organizations, Mr. Wilson continues a life of service.
