The United Nations Association in Canada is not a Canadian office of the United Nations. We are a distinct organization with a focus on public engagement activities within Canada, therefore unfortunately we cannot connect you to the United Nations.

Please refer to http://www.un.org for more information on the United Nations.

We would be happy to try and attend your event. Please provide a minimum of one month’s notice as we are entirely staffed by volunteers and therefore it will be dependent on availability.
