Logo of the Toronto Science Policy Network.

The Toronto Science Policy Network is a student-run science policy group which provides a platform to learn more about and engage in science policy.

Since July 2018, we have organized a variety of events (including workshops, public panels and talks) and advocacy efforts, engaging over 300 individuals to date. While we are a recognized campus group at the University of Toronto, we welcome members outside the university to join. Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you study or actively work in the sciences, social sciences, or humanities.
