Interested in hosting a CASC Conference? 

The Canadian Association of Science Centres invites proposals from its Full Members to partner with CASC to host future annual conferences.

We hold our annual conference once a year in the month of May. Hosting the CASC annual conference is an exciting opportunity to showcase your successes and expand relationships with colleagues and stakeholders. While hosting the conference is a significant commitment, it is also an outstanding opportunity for your centre to demonstrate locally the nationwide commitment to enhancing the science centre experience.

Our 18th Annual Conference will be in Ottawa, ON from Wednesday May 27 to Friday May 29, 2020 and will be hosted by Ingenium - Canada's Museums of Science and Innovation.

Through our activities, staff, stakeholders and partners, Canada’s sciences centres and science museums are enabling a truly national dialogue that inspires scientific innovation, inclusiveness, and meaningful collaboration. Innovation is not accomplished in silos – to be successful in today’s world, we have to embrace our role as global scientific and cultural connectors, a gathering hub where ideas mature, hatch, take flight!
