Right honourable Jean Chretien

The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, Canada’s 20th prime minister, will be awarded an honorary degree at the 5:15 p.m. ceremony on Tuesday, June 21, “in recognition of his distinguished leadership in Canadian government.” The ceremony, including his speech (which will be delivered virtually) can be watched live online at https://convocation.carleton.ca/live/.

A number of Faculty of Public Affairs degrees will be granted at the ceremony, including the Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership, the Master of Public Policy and Administration, the Master of Infrastructure Protection and International Security, the Master of Indigenous Policy and Administration, and the Bachelor of Global and International Studies.

“We are privileged to have the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien speak to our Faculty of Public Affairs graduates this year,” says Brenda O’Neill, Dean of the Faculty. “It is particularly appropriate as we are the only faculty in Canada dedicated to the study of governance and civil society and his career has been dedicated to public service.”

As leader of the Liberal Party, Chrétien won the October 1993 federal election and became Canada’s 20th prime minister. Following a decade in office, Chrétien left the Office of Prime Minister of Canada in December 2003 and remains Canada’s oldest living prime minister.
