Diefenbaker Canada Centre

The Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker dreamed of a united Canada, one that would find strength through diversity. The DCC’s mandate is to build on this legacy by celebrating citizenship, leadership, human rights, and Canada’s role in the international community. The DCC offers a distinctively Canadian cultural experience. In addition to preserving and interpreting the core collection of personal artifacts bequeathed by Mr. Diefenbaker to the University of Saskatchewan, the DCC proudly hosts exhibits that interpret the Canadian experience, with a particular emphasis on the culture and heritage of the nation’s many peoples.
