What is Science Literacy Week?

Science Literacy Week highlights Canada’s outstanding scientists and science communicators from coast-to-coast.

The goals are to showcase the excellence and diversity of Canadian science and to show how exciting science is. Be it as simple as a science-themed book display encouraging people to read something a little different to multi-day events, the week offers something for everyone.

For one week in September, libraries, universities, museums and other partners put on a spectacular nationwide festival of science.
