National Seminar 2016

The 2016 National Seminar will take place in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia from October 26th – 31st, 2016. The CSDF is proud to be celebrating its 50th Seminar this year!

The theme for this year’s Seminar is Immigration & Emigration: Then & Now. Nova Scotia has long been the point of entry for immigrants to Canada. We also have a long history of emigration both forced, as with the expulsion of the Acadians, and economic, as is the case currently with young people leaving the province for financial reasons. At this year’s Seminar, we will explore issues such as refugees, the impact of colonialism on our Native peoples, migrant workers and international students.

Students are selected for the National Seminar by their provincial debate organizations. If you have any questions about your organization’s selection process, please contact them directly. For questions about the Seminar directly, you should contact seminar@csdf-fcde.ca. Our online registration forms for delegates closed on July 15th.

The National Seminar is able to provide travel funding for its delegates through a grant from the Government of Canada. To claim this funding, delegates will need to fill out the 2016 Travel Claim Form (Word).
