October 25 to 27, 2019 at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler

Dear Prospective Delegates, School Advisors, and Parents,


Welcome to the 14th iteration of the Vancouver Youth Model United Nations.


My name is Alison Lee, and on behalf of the Secretariat team and West Point Grey Academy, I would like to extend a warm invitation to this year’s VYMUN, to be held from October 25th to October 27th, 2019 at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler in Vancouver, British Columbia.


Each year, VYMUN serves as a platform for youth to be curious and passionate about relevant social, political, and economic topics that pertain to the international community and connects some of the brightest and most driven students. As a conference that is often the first introduction to the community of Model United Nations, we strive to be an immersive educational experience that challenges students to broaden their perspective, partake in rigorous debate, create innovative solutions, and find a compromise through diplomacy. Furthermore, for each iteration of the conference, VYMUN chooses a theme that reflects the current concerns of the international community, aiming to imitate the real United Nations. This year’s theme is the “Rise of Technology,”  reflecting the international community’s piquing interest in cyber warfare, CRISPR, and more.


Over the past few months, our Staff and Secretariat teams have been dedicated to preparing this conference, and we are beyond excited to share this unforgettable experience. We sincerely hope that each of you, as teachers and parents, will support your students or children to join us at VYMUN 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact me via if you have any questions or concerns. For more information regarding registration, please visit our registration page.


Thank you for joining us, and I look forward to meeting you all in October.
