April 27th to 29th, 2018 at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel
Dear Delegates, Teachers, Chaperones, and Parents,
It is my distinct honour to invite you to the seventh session of Canada International Model United Nations.
Since its inception in 2012, CAIMUN has become the fastest growing Model UN conference in Canada, all the while committed to creating the most inventive, stimulating, and professional conference experience possible. Dedicated to its principles of innovation, education, and engagement, CAIMUN takes a great deal of pride in fostering politically aware, socially conscious students on their way to becoming the leaders of the future. Over the past year, I, along with the secretariat and staff teams have worked diligently to ensure that this year’s conference lives up to CAIMUN’s standard of excellence and innovation.
With over 600 attendees in our previous year, we welcome you to join us at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel in beautiful Downtown Vancouver, from April 27th to 29th, 2018. This year, we have once again curated a set of unique, relevant committees varying widely in both topic and intensity. Thus, any delegate—regardless of their level of experience or their field of interest—can both challenge and enjoy themselves at CAIMUN 2018. Through our distinctive committees and innovative features such as the CAIMUN smartphone application, the IPC’s online platform, and exciting crisis activities, we are certain this year’s conference will not disappoint.
Furthermore, I am devoted to ensuring that CAIMUN maintains its pledge to accessibility. At CAIMUN, we strive to provide a world-class conference experience to any student who wishes to participate, no matter their socioeconomic background. In order to realize this goal, we will continue to offer extensive financial aid to qualified registrants. In doing so, we can guarantee that financial and logistical constraints do not prevent passionate students from attending CAIMUN and experiencing the value of Model United Nations. Committed to expanding our conference’s scope, we plan to broaden our outreach to several new schools both in Canada and beyond, in keeping with our tradition of encouraging and engaging students in Model UN worldwide.
Finally, I would like to encourage delegates to truly enjoy themselves. CAIMUN is not only a platform to discover your passions, learn about global affairs, and gain valuable perspectives, but also to meet new people and forge lasting memories. Therefore, I implore you to take this opportunity, and truly immerse yourself in every aspect of your Model United Nations experience.
I look forward to welcoming you in April.
Secretary-General | CAIMUN 2018
