On Wednesdays, September through November and January through March, Academy members congregate at Knox College to hear debates on topical issues and talks from members and well-known experts on a wide range of academic, social, and political issues.

There is no charge for Forums, and pre-booking is not required. All Forums are at 2:15pm


The Talks Committee - in consultation with the facilitators of the Comedy Workshop - has decided to cancel the last Winter Forum scheduled for Wednesday, March 25. It was to be our Spring Thaw Comedy Show.

We hope to be able to showcase our wonderful Academy comedians at a Fall Comedy Forum.
