We are excited to announce our conference this year will move to the heart of downtown Victoria! Making use of the amazing Victoria Conference Centre and the Parliament Buildings, it is a thrill and an honour to announce that the Canadian House of Commons will be hosted on the floor of the British Columbia Legislature!



ShawMUN has always prided itself on offering a plethora of committees and this year is no different. With the mission of creating an environment for all delegates to thinking critically and creatively in mind, the Secretariat team is excited to introduce ShawMUN Victoria 2018’s committees.



Meet the first-ever ShawMUN Victoria Secretariat! Our secretariat is a group devoted to the success of our inaugural conference. The people listed display a range of talents and perspectives and have all committed the past few months to the success of this conference. They bid you welcome and hope you enjoy your time with us down here in Victoria!
