Diefenbaker Canada Centre

The Diefenbaker Canada Centre (DCC) is unique for both its location on the University of Saskatchewan campus and its appeal to a diverse audience of all ages and identities.  We acknowledge that the DCC resides on Treaty Six Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. While we celebrate citizenship, leadership, and Canada’s role in the international community, we also pay our respect to the First Nation and Métis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another.

During his service to this country and its people, The Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker dreamed of a creating a united Canada, one which would find strength in diversity and where people in every region would share in prosperity. We believe in and continue to support his goal of a united country—one that celebrates and supports all races, colours, religions, genders, gender identities or expressions, sexual orientations, national origins, disabilities, and ages—by welcoming all to the centre.

In addition to preserving and interpreting the core collection of personal artifacts bequeathed by Mr. Diefenbaker, the Diefenbaker Canada Centre proudly hosts a wide variety of exhibits designed to appeal to audiences of all ages. Our mission is to help people make meaningful and personal connections to ideas of citizenship, leadership, and Canada’s role in the international community.  With free admission, affordable programming, and guided tours, the DCC creates a welcoming and accessible environment that bridges the gap between the University of Saskatchewan and the greater Saskatoon community. Education, learning and discovery are foremost in all activities and exhibits, encouraging visitors to explore and engage with all that the Diefenbaker Canada Centre has to offer.
