ILS

Ottawa,ON, Canada

The Institute for Liberal Studies (ILS) is a registered educational charity dedicated to encouraging the discussion of classical liberal ideas in Canada. They encourage discussion and debate about issues grounded in democracy, rule of law, and economic and personal freedoms. Its mission is to provide a venue where people can hear from leading scholars and policy experts while discussing important ideas in a non-partisan environment.ILS seminars focus on themes such as the relationship between economics and government, philosophy and society, environmental policy and social policy. Many of our one-day seminars are held on university campuses and are offered free of charge. Students, faculty, and members of the public are welcome at these events.
