Signatures Series: Library and Archives Canada hosts the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) invites you to an hour of lively conversation with the former Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien.

Mr. Chrétien will be the guest of Guy Berthiaume, Librarian and Archivist of Canada, as part of the Signatures Series, which features original interviews with individuals who have donated their archives to LAC.

Almost 40 years of political life are contained in the documents held by LAC. These records not only cover Mr. Chrétien’s long political career, but also provide a unique perspective on a large portion of Canadian history. Mr. Chrétien had an impact on world events such as major international summits, the Kyoto Protocol, the Iraq War and the Ottawa Convention to ban landmines, to name a few.

Reserve your spot now for this encounter with Jean Chrétien to be held on Wednesday, May 18 from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., at LAC, 395 Wellington Street in Ottawa. Places for this free event are limited, so please register by email at

Documents from the Jean Chrétien fonds will be on display during the event.
