Every year the Canadian Association of Science Centres and its Board of Directors organizes a three-day conference offering pre and post conference activities, keynote speakers, a variety of sessions, and opportunities to network with colleagues at events including a welcome reception, trade show, and the CASCADE National Awards Ceremony and Banquet.


CASC 2023: May 16-18, 2023, Ottawa ON

The theme of this year's conference is Communities for Change

From local action to global impact, community science engagement is essential for making positive societal change. The informal science learning sector functions as a community. Each organization is a hub that connects their audiences to each other, and to science relevant to their lives, their families, and their culture. From climate change to health to tackling misinformation, encouraging evidence-based decision making is essential for an equitable, thriving, and sustainable future. Each of us are leaders. Together, we drive change. 

> Interested in hosting a CASC Conference? 

The Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) invites proposals from its Science Centre/Museum Members to partner with CASC to host future annual conferences.

We hold our annual conference once a year in May or early June. 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/museum to demonstrate locally the nationwide commitment to enhancing the science centre/museum experience.  

Please reach out to with your expression of interest. Please indicate which year(s) you are interested in.
