Greetings from the Secretary General
Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Staff, and Guests,
It is my pleasure and honour to invite you all to the third edition of the Vanier Model United Nations Conference, which will be held on April 25th and 26th 2020 at Vanier College in Ville Saint-Laurent. We are very excited to be hosting the conference for another consecutive year, and cannot wait to see you there. VMUN is proud of the welcoming, fun, and educative opportunity it provides to new and seasoned delegates alike. We hope to create a positive and safe environment for all, from staffers, to volunteers, and delegates.
This year, we have concocted a series of diverse, exciting, and original committees so that every single delegate can find something that piques their interest: the World Health Organization, a general assembly about vaping; The Trial of Socrates, a specialized agency that has Socrates’ fate in its hands; 9/12/2001, a crisis about the day following 9/11; The Newsroom, a crisis about what happens behind the scenes of televised news shows; and The Peloponnesian War, a joint crisis about the historic conflict opposing Spartans and Athenians.
The organization of this event would not be possible without the tireless dedication of the Secretariat members and staff, which I am truly grateful to be working alongside of. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to each and every individual who has generously given their time and energy to help us organize another promising conference. I would also like to offer, on behalf of the Secretariat, our thanks to the Vanier Foundation, the Vanier College Students’ Association, Jake’s Coop, and Vanier’s Communications and Corporate Affairs Department for all of the support they have graciously provided us. The encouragement of our community means the world to us and gives us the incentive to keep on improving what has been accomplished before us.
I am incredibly excited to welcome you all to our beautiful Vanier College campus on April 25 and 26th, 2020, right in time to start the celebrations of Vanier’s 50th anniversary!

Following recommendations from the government of Quebec, the minister of Health, and Vanier College, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of VMUN 2020, which was supposed to be held on April 25th and 26th. This is in an attempt to prevent the further spread of the pandemic. We truly apologize for the cancellation, as we were looking forward to a weekend of great debating and diplomacy to finish the 2020 MUN circuit. We truly thank you for your interest in VMUN, and wish to see you next year for VMUN 2021.
Take care and be safe,
The VMUN 2020 secretariat.
