The Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker dreamed of a united Canada, one which would find strength through diversity. The Diefenbaker Canada Centre’s (DCC) mandate is to build on this legacy by celebrating citizenship, leadership, human rights and Canada’s role in the international community. In addition to preserving and interpreting the core collection of personal artifacts bequeathed by Mr. Diefenbaker to the University of Saskatchewan (UofS), 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.

      
      The Diefenbaker Canada Center (DCC) offers a distinctively Canadian cultural experience. Education, learning and discovery are foremost in all activities and exhibits. With free admission affordable programming and interpretive tours, the DCC has created a welcoming and accessible environment. This fosters engagement that bridges the gap between the university and the greater Saskatoon community, and between all citizens, irrespective of background.

         Originally opened in 1980, the gallery and bulding underwent significant renovations (funded by the UofS and the federal government) in March 2012, to modernize the spaces. Welcoming well over ten thousand local, national, and international visitors annually, the DCC is a vital part of Saskatoon’s cultural landscape.
