COVID-19 Cancellation Update - March 30th, 2020

Dear Delegates, Sponsor Teachers, and Chaperones,

Every year, the CAIMUN Secretariat team works diligently for months to facilitate the best possible Model United Nations experience to all its participants. Our strive to deliver this educational adventure filled with invigorating debate is truly the focal point of our high school careers. However, due to the persistence of the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with health authorities' guidelines, we have regrettably come to the decision to cancel Canada International Model United Nations 2020.

Delegates registered for CAIMUN 2020 will have their registration transferred to CAIMUN 2021 free of additional charge. Unique codes will be distributed to delegates at a later date; these may be transferred to any other student.

Graduating delegates, along with delegates residing outside of British Columbia's lower mainland will receive a full refund, minus a $20 administrative fee to defray transaction fees and non-refundable purchases already made by CAIMUN. Please submit the refund form at www.caimun.ca/refund.html no later than April 15th, 11:59 PM PDT. School delegations who paid collectively will be directly contacted to arrange logistics regarding refunds.

Refunds will be automatically issued in full for sponsor teacher/chaperone fees, additional nights, staff fees, and occupancy upgrades. Furthermore, all refunds will be processed to the original payment method by May 15th at the latest.

Should any questions or concerns arise, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] or [email protected].

We would like to personally thank all of our participants in making CAIMUN 2020 possible. Your support goes unparalleled and is extremely appreciated. We look forward to seeing you all at CAIMUN 2021.

Sincerely,

The CAIMUN Secretariat Team

 

Welcome from the Secretary-General

SG-Welcome

Dear Prospective Delegates, Sponsor Teachers, and School Administrations,

My name is Othman John Mekhloufi and it is my distinct pleasure to serve as the Secretary-General of Canada International Model United Nations 2020. On behalf of the Secretariat team, I graciously invite you to the ninth iteration of one of Canada’s premier Model United Nations conferences and the very first in the nation to invite international participants— to be held on May 22nd - 24th, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Since its inception in 2012, CAIMUN has constantly strived to facilitate student discourse on international affairs, inspiring youths to become global citizens ready to learn and engage with the most alarming and multi-faceted world issues. For three days, hundreds of delegates coming from across the globe partake in an unforgettable experience of Model United Nations by entering the inspiring, imaginative, and ever so creative world of diplomacy and debate.

At CAIMUN, we seek to improve the already extraordinary delegate experience by pushing the limits of innovation. Whether it be the intricate design of our committee program or implementation of our signature CAI-Forum, CAIMUN seeks to have every aspect of the conference embody the principle of innovation—a foundation we have always taken pride in.

With its exceptional Staff and Secretariat team, there is no doubt that CAIMUN 2020 will provide an exceptional experience for every attendee. Should any questions regarding the conference arise, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

Thank you for joining us at CAIMUN 2020 and I look forward to meeting you next May.

Sincerely,

Othman J. Mekhloufi
Secretary-General of CAIMUN 2020
