The Empire Club of Canada has published every speech ever delivered to its members and guests, every year, since 1902. The Annual Red Book is provided at no charge to every library in Canada, every member of the club, and every Canadian Embassy around the world.
The honour of speaking to the members and guests of the Empire Club of Canada is best exemplified by the publication of the Annual Red Book. Each Red Book contains every speech delivered that season (Fall through Spring the following year). No other organization in North American can claim such continuity of publication.
The Club holds high the importance of a written record of each speech. In the digital age, we have now added video content to our website so that people around the world can now not only read its speech, but also experience it. Yet even with this new ability, we know that nothing will replace the elegance of this red leather-bound book.
Given to each Empire Club speaker, they tell us of the honour they experience knowing that their words are in the carried in the volumes that follow those of Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, Canadian Prime Ministers, Premiers, and Cabinet Ministers, as well as the icons of Canadian business and media.
The cost of this annual publication is borne by the Empire Club Foundation through fundraising an annual grant from the Club. It is a charitable non-profit organization. John Koopman is the current Chairman. For more information on how you can support the Foundation, please call (416) 364-2878
