Welcome from the Secretary-General


Dear Prospective Delegates, Sponsor Teachers, and School Administrations,

My name is Othman John Mekhloufi and it is my distinct pleasure to serve as the Secretary-General of Canada International Model United Nations 2020. On behalf of the Secretariat team, I graciously invite you to the ninth iteration of one of Canada’s premier Model United Nations conferences and the very first in the nation to invite international participants— to be held on May 22nd - 24th, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Since its inception in 2012, CAIMUN has constantly strived to facilitate student discourse on international affairs, inspiring youths to become global citizens ready to learn and engage with the most alarming and multi-faceted world issues. For three days, hundreds of delegates coming from across the globe partake in an unforgettable experience of Model United Nations by entering the inspiring, imaginative, and ever so creative world of diplomacy and debate.

At CAIMUN, we seek to improve the already extraordinary delegate experience by pushing the limits of innovation. Whether it be the intricate design of our committee program or implementation of our signature CAI-Forum, CAIMUN seeks to have every aspect of the conference embody the principle of innovation—a foundation we have always taken pride in.

With its exceptional Staff and Secretariat team, there is no doubt that CAIMUN 2020 will provide an exceptional experience for every attendee. Should any questions regarding the conference arise, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

Thank you for joining us at CAIMUN 2020 and I look forward to meeting you next May.


Othman J. Mekhloufi
Secretary-General of CAIMUN 2020
