Call for Proposals to Host Canada’s True North Science Boot Camp 2022

April 29, 2021

Updated: June 14, 2021

The True North Science Boot Camp (TNSBC) is an annual professional development program for librarians. TNSBC activities span three days and feature educational presentations delivered by scientists and STEM librarians. The event provides opportunities for librarians to learn more about science and the research process, discuss best practices, and share ideas and experiences in an intimate atmosphere.


Required for the proposal:

  • Description of theme (e.g. undergraduate STEM research) or topics (e.g., chemistry, neuroscience, etc.) being proposed. You are not required to supply a detailed final program; an outline with some proposed sessions and speakers would suffice.
  • Proposed dates for the event.
  • Statement of institutional commitment (i.e., UL/AUL statement of support).
  • Brief budget outline with tentative registration fees.
  • Description of optional activities being proposed.
  • Dates being proposed.
  • Options for accommodations with an estimated cost, if possible.

Examples of Previous TNSBC Programs:

Decision making:

  • Decisions about the TNSBC 2022 will be made by the outgoing TNSBC 2021 Planning Committee.
  • To facilitate your thinking and planning, previous organizing committees have created a background document to help you with your proposal.
  •  If you have any questions or require additional information about submitting a proposal, please contact
