Welcome to 2021-2022!

The OSDU board is hard at work getting organized for this upcoming school year, and look forward to seeing all of you again. We will continue to have a busy slate of events for you to participate in. Registration for OSDU membership is now open. Many event dates have already been posted in the calendar page. Please keep checking back for updates.

CSDF National Seminar 2021

The annual CSDF Seminar will take place online from September 30 – October 3. The theme is Reconciliation: Making the Calls to Action a Reality. OSDU is calling for application to complete it’s delegation for the event. You have the option to enter in the English, Bilingual or French division. Please note this is a non-competitive event, so if you have regularly attended higher level debate events, then this is not for you. There is a strict limit of one student per school in the English category. OSDU will pay your registration fee. If you are interested, you must complete and return the attached form by June 5.
