McGill Third Century Celebration Vancouver

Monday, August 8, 2022
5:30 PM to 8:30 PM PDT

As part of McGill University's ongoing Bicentennial festivities, we are celebrating the start of our third century in style. We are pleased to invite you to a special evening aboard a yacht in Vancouver Harbour to mark this historic anniversary.

Join us as we reunite, after a two-year hiatus, with McGill's Vancouver community of friends and alumni to celebrate our shared history and hear stories about the University's influence in our lives. The event will include a live performance by McGill musicians, a tribute to the tremendous success of the Best in the West student awards program, and a toast to the graduating classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Boarding: 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Disembarking: 8:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Help us launch McGill's next century of bold ideas and global engagement!
