CANADA IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR: But what do we truly know about our neighbor to the north?

South Coast Senior College - Online Class

Class Description

The friendship is intense, and the connection is unparalleled, but the future relationship should not be taken for granted. This timely class will help develop and foster empathy and a better understanding of what Canada is all about. (Hint: It’s a lot more than Sergeant Preston and curling.)

This two-part lecture/discussion will examine a Canada that has evolved into a proud liberal democracy. The US and Canada share basic similarities, but at the same time, the differences are profound. The reality is that we still have so much to learn from each other.


Teaching the class will be Hal Hannaford (, who has spent his entire professional life in education. In June, 2020, Hal retired after completing 31 years as a Headmaster in Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) schools.

He studied at Queen’s University (Economics), Concordia University (B. Comm.), University of Toronto (B. Ed.), and The European Institute of Business Administration (M.B.A.).

Date & Time

The two-session class will be taught via ZOOM on Wednesday, February 22, and Thursday, February 23, from 10 AM to 11:30.


The cost is $10.
