It is the mandate of the First Canadian National Bioethics Conference
to both raise awareness and dispel obscurity about bioethical issues
on a national and international level amongst Canadian undergraduate
It is, of course open to undergraduate students worldwide, but
many issues will be addressed in terms of contemporary Canadian legal
and medical structures and policies; and in general, in terms of life
in Canadian society.
i. as per above mission statement.
ii. to provide a national (and international) forum for an open dialogue
amongst undergraduate students on contemporary bioethical issues, especially
those most concerning daily Canadian life.
iii. to give undergraduate students - future healthcare professionals,
legal professionals, bioethicists, and policy makers - the opportunity
to network with students with related interests and career plans.
iv. to establish a self-propagating system of Canadian undergraduate
conferences, to occur biennially initially, and eventually annually.
v. to inspire students to take what they have learned, and actively
engage in making their fellow students aware of bioethical issues upon
their return to their respective universities.
