Debate in Canada

While the Canadian Student Debating Federation (CSDF) oversees the National Team Tryouts, the Annual National Seminar, and funding for provinces to develop debate, there is a different group that oversees our national competitions.  This group is the Canadian National Debating Championships (CNDC).  Governed by a group of governors, elected each year at the Senior High National Championships, they are there to support the convenor for the following year’s national championships.


The 2018-2019 Governing Board are:
Brian Casey - NS - Convenor 2019 SHNC
John Robinson - MB
Debra Miko - AB
Tracey Lee - BC
Joshua Judah - NS
Jonathan Bracewell - QC
Emily Bonia - ON
Frankie Cena - BC
