Inviting an astronaut or a speaker
Please be advised that our program is full for the remainder of the 2016-2017 school year. It will therefore not be possible to book additional speaking engagements (in-person or virtual) with the Canadian Space Agency Astronauts. Thank you for your understanding.
It is the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) mandate to inspire the future generations of Canadians to study and pursue a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. What better way to do this than through our astronauts, David Saint-Jacques and Jeremy Hansen, who are fantastic speakers and great role models for young and old alike.
In addition to our two astronauts, CSA Speakers Bureau is fortunate to have a team of knowledgeable scientific experts and engineers who are highly skilled at presenting to school children, universities or professional organizations.
If you would like to invite David, Jeremy or one of our experts to speak at an event or school, you must submit a formal request.
To help us serve you better, please read the "What you need to know" section that follows, then submit the invitation form at least two months, but not more than six months before the event. The CSA carefully evaluates all requests and you will receive a reply within six to eight weeks on average.
