Student Forum

Since 2006, the National Student Forum has provided students with the opportunity to dialogue with some of Canada’s leaders on how their faith in Jesus Christ inspires their involvement in politics and the public sphere. Students have the opportunity to engage with leaders in round-table and panel discussions and connect with other young people on issues such as human trafficking, religious persecution, and more…

The Student Forum is open to mature high school students, college and university students, and young professionals.
