Dive into a world where knowledge comes to life, theories are tested, and young minds are inspired. The Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) is more than just a STEM project competition – it’s a celebration of curiosity, innovation, and the next generation of Canadian scientists.
The Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF) is the country’s largest annual youth science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) event, bringing together top young scientists and their projects, selected by our national network of over 100 regional STEM fairs in every province and territory.
Empower the future of STEM by immersing your students in the pinnacle of young Canadian innovation. The lessons they learn here extend far beyond the classroom.

If you are an educator with students in Grades 5-9, we would love to have you visit the fair. We’ll even help cover the cost of a bus to get you here!
A subsidy of up to $250.00 per bus is available to eligible schools, on a first-come, first-served basis. In 2023, Youth Science Canada approved over 200 bus subsidy requests, financially supporting over 10,000 visiting students and their teachers to visit CWSF 2023 in Edmonton.
CWSF 2024 bus subsidy registration will open fall 2023 and bus subsidy requests must be made by January 31, 2024. Schools selected to receive funding will be notified no later than February 29, 2024.
