I was contracted by QMi Agency, on behalf of Heritage Canada, to provide editorial photographs from two Canada 150 Roundtables held in Moncton, NB, on 22 March 2014.
My role was to obtain candid photographs of the roundtable hosts and participants during the actual sessions.
The Canada 150 Roundtables are a cross-country consultation process between Heritage Canada and local and regional community leaders. The purpose is to seek local input and ideas regarding the celebrations for Canada's 150th anniversary in 2017. Two roundtables were held in Moncton, a morning session with the theme "Minorities and Languages," and an afternoon session with a "General" theme. The roundtables were chaired by the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Heritage and Official Languages, Mr. Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, and Mr. Paul Landry, Executive Director, Atlantic Region, Heritage Canada.
