The Canadian arm of Ditchley

The Canadian Branch of the Ditchley Society was spun off in 1981 from the UK Ditchley Foundation.


"Ditchley is one of the hidden gems of the Transatlantic relationship . . . its role as a clearing house for ideas; a forum for debate and discussion; and a magnet for policymakers gives it a unique status. It is the intellectual expression of 'soft power' and a tribute to the pre-eminence of reason and rational debate."

The Rt Hon Sir John Major, KG, CH, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Former Chairman, The Ditchley Foundation Council of Management

"Ditchley conferences seed ideas and deepen understanding. The consequences have often been significant and have engendered contacts, friendships and working relationships which have influenced events and policies in many fields."

The Honorable Cyrus R. Vance, KBE Former US Secretary of State and Former Chairman, The American Ditchley Foundation
