Scotland's Impact on Canada

Why Canada, you might ask? The answer lies in the profound and lasting influence of Scotland on Canada's development. Scots have played pivotal roles in shaping this nation from its very inception. From state governance to commerce, Scots-Canadians have been the architects of progress in every sphere. Canada's eminent universities proudly bear the names of Scots who laid the foundations of their excellence. The connection is deep, and it's time to celebrate it in style!

The Venue

Built in 1926, the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex is one of Toronto’s few heritage complexes. This monumental waterfront property boasts three impressive grand ballrooms, decorated in traditional early 1900’s elegance. With chrystal chandeliers, iron-laced balconies, thirty-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking Lake Ontario, there is a feeling of stately elegance. The European style courtyard, majestic domes and columns bring back memories of an authentically historic atmosphere. As well, there is ample parking right outside the facility, and it is a very short taxi/Uber ride from central Toronto.
