MacEwan to host town hall with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

January 25, 2018

All members of the public are invited to attend the event on February 1

On Thursday, February 1, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will make a stop in Edmonton to address the public and answer questions in a town hall setting. MacEwan University’s David Atkinson Gymnasium will serve as the host venue for the event.

Event access is on a first-come, first-served basis, so those interested in attending are encouraged to arrive early. MacEwan staff, faculty and students will not receive priority over the general public, and must follow the same process to attend. Registration for the event does not guarantee admission.

Here’s what you need to know to attend the event.

  • Check-in for the event begins at 5 p.m. on the second floor of the Robbins Health Learning Centre
  • Large coats, jackets and bags will not be permitted at the event, and a mandatory coat check will be in place

Check-in process

  1. Arrive at the check-in area on the second floor of the Robbins Health Learning Centre (10910 104 Ave) to check your belongings and receive your entry wristband
  2. Once you have your wristband, you may proceed to the David Atkinson Gymnasium. Enter the gym through the doors on the pedway level. You must have a wristband to enter the event.
  3. Event begins at 7 p.m.

Though the event will not interfere with any classes occurring at that time, students and faculty should plan to arrive early for evening classes, as traffic and parking in the area are expected to be busier than usual. Use of public transit is encouraged for a smoother commute.
