Canada 2020 chairman Tom Pitfield says Obama is a "generation-defining political leader" and an inspiration to millions of people around the world.
Tickets for the event start at $75, the think-tank says.
Since Obama s presidency ended in January 2017, he s become a big name on the paid speaking circuit, and appeared at a similar event in Calgary in March.
In 2016, as president, he addressed Canada s Parliament and received a standing ovation and cheers in the House of Commons.
