We haven't quite decided the exact date of WAC. More information will be known as registration packages get sent out.
The first day of the conference consists just of the Lionel Gelber Keynote Address which is hosted in the evening. This event is open to the Toronto community, and anyone is welcome to attend. The second day of the conference begins at 8AM and is attended by only registered student delegates and their faculty supervisors. We do encourage students to attend the Keynote Address if it is of interest to them. It tends to feature a well know speaker of great importance to current affairs.
Registration for WAC 2016 is being organized right now. Updates will be sent out shortly.
