YSF Canada began in 1962 as the Canadian Council for Science Fairs, created by an association of national professional, scientific and technical societies.
The Canadian Council for Science Fairs was replaced by the
Youth Science Foundation.
The Youth Science Foundation was renamed as YSF Canada, with an expanded mission, vision and objectives.
To be the national organization for leadership in extra-curricular science and technology education.
To stimulate an interest in science and technology among young Canadians.
To encourage young Canadians to pursue career interests in science and technology, and to increase science literacy.
- Producing the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF), our national science fair, and the designation of affiliated Regional Science Fairs (like us), and the regions we represent.
- "Team Canada", international exchanges for science fair winners (USA, England, Sweden, Israel).
- Pilot projects in National Science Olympics, Sci-Tech Clubs and Young Scientists of Canada.
