Long Description:
Since the opening of the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in September 2000, over two thousand events have been hosted in Asia Pacific Hall alone, and the eleven additional rooms are in constant use by members of the business and professional community, government, community groups, and members of the university.

This British Columbia’s only centre dedicated exclusively to meetings certified by the prestigious International Association of Conference Centers (IACC).

The purpose of the space is to create a home for dialogue which provides the best possible environment for interaction and full participation by all delegates.

Many civic and governmental leaders were at the grand opening. The Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia was the highest ranking member of the delegation.

Gardom was born in Banff, Alberta on 17 July 1924. In 1995 he was appointed Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and served until 2001. Gardom died on 18 June 2013 at age 88.
