In 1994 the Governors of the Eaton Foundation of Toronto Canada donated £10,000 via the Ireland Fund of Canada to permanently endow the Eaton Lecture to be held annually at Queen's University Belfast, arranged by the University's Centre of Canadian Studies. The Eaton Lecturers should normally be prominent Canadians or students of Canada and someone whose work focuses on the links between Canada and Northern Ireland. The first lecture in 1994 was by Frederick S Eaton, Canadian High Commissioner to the UK. The Eatons descend from Timothy Eaton from Ballymena who founded the Eaton retail business in the 19th Century after he had migrated to Ontario.
