Event Details


The What:

Join us for the first ever Saskatchewan Youth Symposium. 

Together we will enhance our knowledge of Saskatchewan industries, develop professional working relationships through the Friday evening networking event, build a synergistic Saskatchewan ‘Growth Plan’, and activate an engaged youth generation.

Offering a multi-disciplinary angle, the workshops and presentations aim to connect with the following relevant issues: internationalization, innovation, sustainability, and urbanization.

We aim to provide a platform for Saskatchewan themed learning and discussion.

Networking Event (Day 1): January 25th  @ 6:00 pm, Saskatoon Sheraton Cavalier

Keynote address begins at 7 pm.

All-day Workshops (Day 2): January 26th @ 8:30 am, University of Saskatchewan (Timlin Theatre)
