CSPC and OCSA are pleased to offer this program in 2021 to help strengthen the connection between the science and policy communities. The program provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to learn about the inclusion of scientific evidence in policy making in Parliament.
The inaugural Science Meets Parliament program took place November 5-6, 2018, and brought 29 emerging leaders of the scientific community from across Canada to the Hill. The program was a great success, receiving positive feedback from both Science Meets Parliament delegates and participating parliamentarians. Here is what delegates had to say:
“This is a valuable eye-opening experience for scientists to learn about current issues, the legislative process, and most importantly, to get to know the MPs.” – delegate
“My ability to connect with parliamentarians and policy-makers and move my research into policy channels has never before felt so possible.” – delegate
