ShawMUN North

ShawMUN North is a beginner conference. For those looking for an excellent first conference experience, this is one for you! Our first ShawMUN North conference was a huge success, and we hope to continue that success further into years to come! Have a look back here and on our Facebook page.


Focus: UN's Sustainable Development Goals


ShawMUN North is located on our beautiful, scenic campus.

Shawnigan Lake School is a fantastic host to begin your MUN conference experience! In addition to first class facilities that meet the needs of our conference, Shawnigan has exceptional architectural design and beautiful scenery that will keep you in awe for hours.


At the October 2017 conference, we had a total of six committees each functioning on their own set of United Nations Development Goals. The committees included:

  • Good Health and Well-being
  • No Poverty
  • Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  • Economic Growth
  • And last but not least, Climate Action!
