A week-long celebration of science and space in Canada: September 16 - 22, 2019

Science Literacy Week highlights Canada’s outstanding scientists and science communicators from coast-to-coast. The goals are to showcase the excellence and diversity of Canadian science and to show how exciting science is. Be it as simple as a science-themed book display encouraging people to read something a little different to multi-day events, the week offers something for everyone. For one week in September, libraries, universities, museums and other partners put on a spectacular nationwide festival of science.

If you'd like to be a part, or are curious to find out more, please get in touch with the founder Jesse Hildebrand at

On September 19th, 2018, CASC was invited to participate in the Prime Minister’s Science Fair. The science fair highlighted the importance of science in the curriculum and featured 36 of Canada’s best and brightest students from across the country. 

This unique opportunity was an excellent platform for CASC members to showcase the importance of informal education and science literacy across Canada. Exhibit displays from 9 of CASC Member Science Centres, Science Museums and Makerspaces were on display. The CASC Board President, Tracy Calogheros, accompanied the Prime Minister, the Chief Science Advisor and the Minister of Science and Sport as they immersed themselves in the scientific hands-on activities put on by science communicators from across Canada. While on the Hill, the Minister of Science and Sport, Kirsty Duncan, also hosted a Roundtable with representatives from 11 CASC member organizations to discuss the impact we have on communicating science to Canadians of all ages.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
