About Us

Science & Policy Exchange (SPE) is a Montreal-based, non-profit organization whose aims are two-fold: (1) to foster the student voice in evidence-based decision making and (2) to bring together leading experts from academia, industry, and government to engage and inform students and the public on issues at the interface of science and policy. Science & Policy Exchange is one of the few bilingual student led initiatives directly engaging Québec’s political scene and effectively bridging the gap between academia, industry and government leaders.

If you are a student in the sciences and are interested in joining the executive committee or to volunteer for our organization please contact us.

Science & Policy Exchange is a registered charity organization (81105 8643 RR0001, Canada Revenue Agency) and listed in the Registraire des Entreprises du Québec.
