Join the Canada 2067 Livestream Event!

Have you ever wondered what life on Mars could look like? On Wednesday, November 15, 2017, approximately 300 youth from the Greater Toronto Area will be doing just that at the Canada 2067 youth conference. Their challenge will be to envision what the future on Mars could be like, with the ultimate goal of re-imagining science learning in Canada. 

But before they get started, they will hear from youth and professional speakers about the STEM careers paths. Join them via livestream to hear from Bonnie Schmidt, CEO of Let's Talk Science, and speakers from organizations that are changing the world we live in today and helping to shape the future through space discovery, software innovations, and more.
  • Moderator – Marc Saltzman – Technology Speaker & Journalist
  • Justin Cembal – Sound Designer, LoveCraft Sound
  • Jeremy Hansen – Astronaut, Canadian Space Agency
  • Leigha Mitchell – Software Developer, Hubba
  • Mike McDonald – Founder/Executive Director, Recess Guardians
  • Andrea Palmer – CEO, Awake Labs
  • Dr. Kona Williams – Forensic Pathologist and Coroner, Ontario Forensic Pathology Service
  • Aidan Aird – Founder & CEO, STEM Kids Rock
  • Samantha Stuart – BASc Candidate, Department of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Toronto
  • Gavin Armstrong – President & CEO, Lucky Iron Fish
Hosted by Canada 2067, a national initiative to shape the future of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning, focusing on Kindergarten to Grade 12, this day-long event is a unique opportunity for collaboration between inspiring youth, professional speakers and breakout groups of students.

Recognizing the growing need for critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators and global citizens, Canada 2067 will use the results from this youth conference as part of the Canada 2067 action plan and national vision for STEM learning that will ensure young Canadians will graduate with the skill set they will need to succeed in the rapidly changing world of tomorrow.

As select portions of the agenda will be streamed live, I hope you will be able to join in either on the Canada 2067 Facebook page or on Canada2067.ca on Wednesday, November 15 at 8:30 AM to noon EST to listen to the amazing speakers.

Canada 2067 is presented by Let’s Talk Science with founding partners including Amgen Canada, 3M Canada, H+K Strategies and Trottier Family Foundation.
