As we celebrate Canada Day while maintaining social distance, Eli’s Place is offering an event to share with your family and friends. Join Dr. Mike Daley as he tells Cohen’s life story and performs a few of his greatest songs in a lively and fascinating presentation.
With words and music, Dr. Mike Daley will tell the story of Canada’s iconic singer, songwriter, poet and novelist. In the words of Rolling Stone magazine: “for nearly half a century, the novelist, ladies’ man and Buddhist monk built a tower of song – even though darkness was never far off”.
Expand your musical knowledge in the comfort of your own home with an engaging video presentation by renowned musicologist Dr. Mike Daley.

Eli’s Place will fill a crucial gap in the mental health system by providing a long-term, rural residential treatment and recovery-based program for young adults with serious mental illness. The first of its kind in Canada, Eli’s Place will offer individualized therapeutic care with a graduated transition into the community. A range of programs will promote recovery and resilience through the acquisition of life and work skills needed to move from survival to living, and from mental illness to hopeful futures.
