National Conference – CSLC

Cslc – Canadian Student Leadership Conference


CSLC is Canada’s longest running national student leadership conference and is exclusive for CSLA member schools

Imagine 750 students and 250 leadership advisors gathering in an action-packed five days to learn leadership skills and activities, make new connections with peers across the country, exchange ideas and have fun!

Throughout the conference, students will attend a series of workshops to further develop their leadership skills, build confidence, and discover new ideas to help them make difference in their own schools and communities. 

CSLC is hosted in a different community across Canada annually. The next Canadian Student Leadership Conference is scheduled to take place in Yorkton, SK in September 2021.

Students have the opportunity to live with a local family and other students when they attend CSLC and learn about the local community and culture. 

Keynotes and Workshops

CSLC hosts top-level keynote speakers and workshop presenters to inspire student leaders in a wide range of topics, ideas, challenges and leadership teachings. 

Advisor Academy

The CSLC Advisor Academy offers curated professional development to educators in Canada through keynote speakers, industry professionals and the CSLA Advisor Certification program.

Cultural Moments

CSLC is hosted in a different location across Canada annually where we highlight the history and culture of the community to educate students about the country they live in.

Community Service

Student leaders give back to their communities regularly, and it is only fitting to give back to the communities that host us annually. Students complete a half day service project while at CSLC.

Student Network

Students meet hundreds of like-minded individuals from across Canada in daily CSLC activities, including within their spirit groups, building lasting connections and networks.

“CSLC gave me the opportunity to understand that there are so many like-minded students across Canada. I learned so much about other provinces and territories and have built life long friendships” – CSLC Delegate, Abbotsford, 2019
