Celebrate 150 years of Canadian science and innovation and five decades of science centres engaging Canadians. Drive the conversation that will define our future. What are the enduring lessons? What do we leave behind to move forward? What’s next?

We invite you to join us May 4-6, 2017 at the Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) Annual Conference in Toronto. 

CASC’s 15th Annual Conference is expected to welcome over 150 delegates from across our country. This three-day conference, hosted by the Ontario Science centre, features pre-conference activities, engaging learning sessions, keynote speakers, and events that include a welcome reception, a tradeshow and our national awards gala.

The goals of the conference are to inspire, to build capacity and to foster collaboration.
