Hycroft Lecture – Michèle Audette

November 26 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada
$85

Join The University Women's Club of Vancouver for a special dinner with Commissioner, National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls, Michèle Audette. 

Commissioner Audette entered politics at a young age, first as president of the Quebec Native Women’s Association and then as Associate Deputy Minister for the Status of Women in the Government of Quebec. She then made the leap to the national scene as president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada.

Her ease and ability to explain Indigenous issues raise awareness and mobilize people to find solutions that bring about real changes, which will surely make this a Hycroft Lecture to remember.

We look forward to seeing you at the Hycroft Ballroom!

Happy hour - 5 pm - 6 pm.
Dinner - 6 pm - 7 pm.
Speaker - 7 pm - 8 pm.

Heritage Lecture – A History of Vancouver Real Estate

November 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

LAND OF DESTINY: A History of Vancouver Real Estate.
The history of Vancouver is closely connected with the history of real estate. Even before its incorporation in 1886, real estate was both the city’s most valuable resource and its most prominent industry. For more than a century, it has shaped virtually every aspect of Vancouver’s growth — its name, placement, most prominent streets and neighbourhoods, local landmarks and its involvement in global events like Expo 86 and the 2010 Olympics. Join author Jesse Donaldson for an illustrated lecture that will examine some of that history, beginning with the first land sales in the region, through the CPR and Vancouver Improvement Company oligopoly of the 1890s, through the housing shortages of the 1930s and 40s, and into the present. While the pressures on the market have increased over the past century, the factors shaping real estate have remained much the same.

TICKETS
UWCV Members $10
Guests $15
Non-members $16
Tickets will be sold at the door (cash only).

Please register with the office by Friday, November 22nd.
