Upcoming Lecture:

Phil Fontaine, former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations
David B. Goodman Lecture

Tuesday, February 9, 2016 - 4:10pm to 6:10pm

Location: Emmanuel College, Room 119 (73 Queen's Park Crescent)

Former three-term National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations,
Phil Fontaine will deliver the Goodman Lecture on February 9 at 4:10
pm. Chief Fontaine is an articulate advocate for indigenous peoples.
He has a proven track record of opening the lines of communication and
bringing people together in a common cause for a better future and to
resolve issues of the past.
Fontaine, the youngest son in an Ojibway family of 12 children, has
been instrumental in facilitating change and advancement for First
Nations people from the time he was first elected to public office as
chief, when he was 28 years old.
An advocate for human rights and a survivor of residential school
abuse, Fontaine's crowning achievement is the residential schools
settlement. At $5.6billion in individual compensation, Fontaine
negotiated the largest settlement in Canadian history – for the
largest human rights violation in Canadian history – arising out of
the 150-year Indian residential school tragedy.
