Our History

Established in 1903, as a response to Canadian political unrest, the Empire Club of Canada quickly became a leading speakers’ forum.

​The club invites speakers to present various perspectives—including those that may not be popular but should be heard. Since its inception, the Empire Club has hosted 3500 prominent Canadian and international leaders, including Prince Edward, the Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII), Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, Audrey Hepburn, Margaret Mead, Christopher Plumber, Roberta Bondar, Maureen Forrester, Adrienne Clarkson, Margaret Thatcher, Vladamir Putin and Bill Gates, to name but a few. Topics encompass business, politics, education, trade, labour, culture, international issues, as well as, other relevant topics that emerge.
