The Canadian Student Leadership Conference would not be possible without the help of our fabulous volunteers! We need your help in making sure each student, advisor and community member has an exceptional experience while in Waterloo!


The Canadian Student Leadership Conference begins with a pre-conference tour for a limited number of students from September 23rd – September 26th in Toronto and Niagara Falls. The main conference will be held in Waterloo from September 26th – September 30th. A day at CSLC starts early in the morning (6am) and can last until midnight (12am). We have many areas where you can volunteer, and be a part of this memorable experience:

The Food Bank of Waterloo Region
