Winnipeg MUNA 2020 – Cancelled

 

Recognizing the current COVID-19 pandemic and the general guidance for avoiding large gatherings to limit the further spread of the virus and protect the health and wellbeing of students, teachers and volunteers, the Winnipeg MUNA organizing committee has officially cancelled this year’s event.

 

Delegations that have already paid their registration fees will be reimbursed in full over the coming weeks.

 

We sincerely thank you for your continued interest in the Winnipeg MUNA to provide students with an opportunity to hone their consensus-building, negotiation and public speaking skills in the context of real-world issues. Please stay tuned to this website for information on MUNA 2021.

 

Our thoughts are with everyone as we all navigate together these new times.

 

Best regards,

 

Darren Swanson

Winnipeg Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA)
