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).  They are governed by a group of governors, elected each year at the Senior High National Championships, and they are there to support the convenor for the following year’s national championships.


The 2017-2018 Governing Board are:
Emily Bonia - NFL - Convenor 2018 SHNC
John Robinson - MB
Debra Miko - AB
Nicole Ratti - ON
Tracey Lee - BC
Joshua Judah - NS
Jonathan Bracewell - QC
Brian Casey - NS
