SJAM is proud to host the 2017 Canadian Student Leadership Conference this coming September 24th to 30th!  Our school will welcome more than 1,500 student leaders and teacher advisors from across the country for 5 days of incredible workshops, guest speakers, activities and community exploration – all with a focus on Waterloo Region’s innovative spirit!

With such a major conference occurring at our unique facility, we will be altering our timetable for 4 days to accommodate over 1200 youth and teachers from across the country.  We believe the rich opportunity and lasting legacy of the conference will be worth this disruption.  To learn more, CLICK HERE!


Our organizing committee is also looking for community support, including billet families for our delegates.  Billeting is part of the “youth exchange” component of the conference and is a vital part of the tradition of CSLC.  Interested families, please visit the CSLC 2017 WEBSITE for more information.  Thanks to Waterloo Region Police Services for assisting with this process, including background checks and waived fees!


An event this size relies on the support of our local community.  We already have a significant number of sponsors on board, including many local tech companies, post-secondary institutions and government agencies.  If you’d like to be part of our CSLC sponsor team, please contact conference co-chair Sandy Millar –
