The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada announces its first in-person events with Dr. Jane Goodall in over 2 years

The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada has announced in-person events with iconic naturalist Dr. Jane Goodall. Dr. Goodall will be returning to Canadian soil for the first time since COVID-19 cancelled her 2020 tour plans.

An Evening with Jane Goodall will see Dr. Goodall back on stage inspiring collective action for animals, people, and the environments we share. Known for her inspirational storytelling, Dr. Goodall’s events have been described as “life-changing,” pairing personal anecdotes with illuminating insights and motivational calls to action. For two nights only, Jane will reignite the audience’s sense of purpose and get people talking, thinking, and doing.

“We’re so excited to reconnect Dr. Goodall with Canadian audiences,” says Alex Johnson, Joint Interim CEO and Director of Communications for the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada. “Before COVID-19, she travelled 300 days a year. But since lockdowns began, she’s been grounded at her childhood home in Bournemouth, U.K., connecting with audiences virtually. This will be some of her first in-person appearances in over two years, and we’re so honoured she’s chosen Canada.”

In the last year alone, Dr. Goodall has been awarded the Templeton Prize, was a COP-26 Ambassador for the United Nations, appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine, and announced the Trees for Jane project to plant a trillion trees by 2030. The Jane Goodall Act, a historic bill to protect animals under human care, was reintroduced to the Senate last month.

The event schedule is as follows:

June 22, 2022 – Calgary, AB at the Jubilee Theatre
June 24, 2022 – Victoria, BC at the Farquhar Auditorium

Early access tickets will go on sale April 19th. General public sales will go on sale April 20th. Tickets are available at

All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada, a charitable organization dedicated to community-centred conservation programs that address the convergence of climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental inequity.

These events are generously supported by Air Canada, the first airline in the Americas to receive the IATA illegal wildlife trade certification.
