Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Sponsor Teachers,

It is my utmost pleasure to invite you to the twelfth annual Canadian High Schools Model United Nations conference to be held on Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13, 2016. At CAHSMUN 2016, over 800 delegates will come together for a lively weekend of diplomacy and debate at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel in Vancouver, BC.

Since our inception in 2005, CAHSMUN’s growth has always been driven by our goal to offer an affordable, high-quality Model United Nations experience. In doing so, CAHSMUN has become one of the largest Model UN conferences in Canada, with a strong reputation for our value of knowledge and student growth.

CAHSMUN’s staff members are at the core of this reputation and prominent in our effort to extend our high-quality experience of Model UN to students across the continent. Their preparation begins months before the conference, with the ultimate goal of catering to the experience of every delegate of the conference. They are trained to promote the development of key skills, such as public speaking, leadership, diplomacy, and critical thinking. All CAHSMUN staff members are highly experienced and trained, and are sure to act as exceptional mentors for delegates throughout the conference.

Following our hugely successful eleventh session, I am excited to continue building upon our commitment to providing an outstanding Model UN experience. CAHSMUN’s substantive program includes 15 diverse committees, each one offering a unique extension to its standard procedures. The Summit has been enhanced to emphasize delegate interaction and diplomatic application, with the effort of expediting the resolution-joining process. Our new staff program emphasizes delegate interaction in order to assist beginner delegates in familizarizing themselves with the Model UN environment, and for the sake of sustaining higher quality debate in advanced committees. Among these changes, I am eagerly awaiting to present you with further improvements that we’ve made to this year’s conference.

Delegate registration for the CAHSMUN 2016 Conference will open on Monday, September 28th. In the meantime, ! More information about the CAHSMUN organization, the conference, and registration can be found throughout this website. If you have any questions, inquiries, or concerns, please feel free to contact me through my email. I look forward to seeing you this March!
