Our History

In only its second year of operation, TEDxBearCreekPark established itself as the premier TEDx event in British Columbia, Canada. 

Our 2020 event was a full day of inspiration, entertainment, and live music with an in-house audience of over 900. It continues to reach hundreds of thousands globally.

The event featured an eclectic mix (14 inspiring talks and 18 performances in total) featuring “ideas worth spreading” across six areas of Human Endeavor (Science, Technology; Art, Design, and Entertainment; Human Rights, Law, and Business; Current Affairs-topical issues; Personal Growth & Development) designed to inspire your hearts and minds. Throughout the day, four Energizers kept everyone laughing and moving.

TEDxBearCreekPark 2021 spins off from 2020’s great success. It will be a live online event incorporating the best of all that we’ve learned and the best we’ve gathered from other online events.
