Youth Science Canada Announces New Dates for the Canada-Wide Science Fair 2024

Youth Science Canada is excited to announce a change in the dates for the upcoming Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF). The premier national event, which celebrates the innovative achievements of young Canadian scientists, will now be held from May 25th to June 1st, 2024.

We are thrilled to share that the CWSF will be hosted at the renowned Carleton University in Ottawa. This venue promises to provide an enriching experience for all participants, with state-of-the-art facilities and a vibrant atmosphere that embodies the spirit of innovation and discovery.

The decision to change the dates was made after careful consideration, ensuring that the event remains accessible and convenient for all participants, educators, and supporters. We understand the importance of planning ahead, and we apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause. We are confident that the new dates will offer an even better experience for everyone involved.

The Canada-Wide Science Fair is a cornerstone event that showcases the brightest young minds from across the country. Every year, students from grades 7-12 compete at regional levels for a chance to present their projects at the national stage. The CWSF is not just a competition; it’s a celebration of curiosity, innovation, and the spirit of discovery. Youth Science Canada remains committed to fostering a love for science and research among Canadian youth. The CWSF is a testament to this commitment, and we look forward to seeing the groundbreaking projects and innovative ideas that our young scientists will present.

Participants can look forward to a week filled with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities, workshops, keynote speakers, and of course, the chance to meet other incredible youth from across the country who also share a passion for STEM. STEM organizations, teachers, and the general public are encouraged to visit the CWSF and experience the accompanying STEM Expo on May 30-31, 2024.

For those planning to attend, please mark your calendars with the new dates. Further details will be released in the coming months. Learn more at
