The 2016 Graduation ceremony will take place on Friday 18th March. If you, or your family and friends can’t make the event in Vancouver and want to watch your loved ones celebrate their big day, we will provide the live stream footage here on this page in the video player above. UPDATE: the footage is now available to play above. Higher definition versions coming soon!

Guest Speaker – Michel Chikwanine (Peace Advocate)

Michel Chikwanine was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He grew up during the Great War of Africa, where he and his family witnessed and experienced torture and the hardships of the war. When he was 5, he was forced to become a child soldier. Michel, who now shares the stage with distinguished speakers such as Robert Kennedy, Jr., former Prime Minister Paul Martin, and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, will inspire our graduates to believe in their ability to make a difference and will leave them with a new perspective on life; a sense of hope through social responsibility; and a desire for change.
