Welcome - Bienvenue !

Our goal is for all finalists, delegates and visitors to have a great stay while in Edmonton. We want you to be part of the team that will help welcome our visitors from across Canada during the week of May 9-15, 2020.

In May 2020, the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) returns to Edmonton. Held at the Edmonton Convention Centre, CWSF will welcome over 450 of Canada’s top young scientists, 300 adult delegates, guests and VIPs, as well as more than 10,000 local area students and members of the public during the week. We are looking for keen volunteers to be part of our Volunteer Team and make CWSF 2020 an unforgettable week for everyone.

In addition to the science and technology competition, a variety of events are planned for the participants, including scientific and cultural experiences, social and recreational events, tours to local points of interest, STEM Expo, school tours, and the final gala Awards Ceremony and Banquet.
