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 2022 : May 24-27, 2022

The theme of this year's virtual conference is ACTION TO IMPACT

Science engagement organizations have long been catalysts for action in advancing science communication and literacy across Canada. These science centres, museums, and outreach organizations are where the rubber hits the pavement and theory is put into practice. The need for meaningful impact has never been so great in the face of climate crisis, reconciliation, systemic inequity and racism, science misinformation, and globally in addressing the UN sustainable development goals. The work requires sustained effort. In a time of disruption, with organizations facing limited resources, the 2022 CASC conference will examine actions for driving courageous change and creating generational impact.

> 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.
