Conference in Canada, in cooperation with Canadian Ditchley and the University of Ottawa
Terms of Reference
Canadian Ditchley discussion paper
Participants are reminded of the confidential basis on which Ditchley Foundation conferences are held. All those participating do so in their personal capacities, not as spokespeople for any country or institution. The discussions are subject to the ‘Ditchley Rule’: all contributions are unattributable and interventions are made in strict confidence; this also applies to conversations outside the formal sessions. Those present are, however, free to draw on the substance of what has been said, but not under any circumstances to disclose who it was that said it. The Rule will be scrupulously observed in any post-conference report.
Attire at Ditchley conferences is informal (business casual) throughout, except for dinner on the second evening (the Saturday), for which business attire will be appropriate.
