YSC releases 2021-2022 Annual Report

Youth Science Canada is pleased to present its annual report for the 2022 fiscal year, ending June 30, 2022.

Although the global pandemic continued challenging youth programs and events throughout 2021 and 2022, we witnessed awe-inspiring creativity and ingenuity as the country’s young scientists continued to discover and innovate, building towards a better tomorrow.


“The past few years have reinforced the importance of STEM in answering essential questions and developing solutions to urgent problems. YSC responded to the challenge of the global pandemic by enabling virtual STEM projects, fairs, and online support for youth getting started with STEM projects. As we return to in-person activities and events, we are excited by the potential of hybrid projects and events to enable every young Canadian to share their curiosity and ingenuity.” – Reni Barlow, Executive Director, Youth Science Canada
