For many years, the CSDF has been able to provide travel funding for delegates to the National Seminar through a grant from the Heritage Canada, making the Seminar economically feasible to attend for many from throughout the country.
The McLeese Debate Foundation was started by Willis S. McLeese as a joint venture between the CSDF and Upper Canada College. Mr. McLeese set up this foundation to get more young people across Canada involved in debating. Each year through the McLeese Opportunities Fund, the CSDF distributes funds to each provincial and territorial debate organization for a project which aims to spread debate in that region. The McLeese foundation also supports the National Seminar with an annual grant.
