The CSDF is always looking for ways to engage with the debate community, with alumni, and with Canadian society. We’re very happy that you would like to contribute! Here are some ways you can get involved.

1. Sponsorship

To fulfil the mission of the CSDF while keeping debate accessible to all Canadian youth, we need financial support. While we also look to government and foundation grants, the support of citizens and community members is always appreciated. If you would like to learn more about being a sponsor of the CSDF, please contact us at for a Sponsorship Package.

2. Volunteer for a debate event

CSDF and its member organizations run many debating events throughout the school year in cities across Canada, from intimate community debate sessions to high-powered high school tournaments. We are always looking for volunteers!

If you’re interested in volunteering in a particular province, check out our list of member organizations for their contact information. You can also contact the CSDF President ( who would be happy to direct you to an appropriate venue to volunteer.
