Canada’s 3MT: From Coast to Coast

Local competitions are the backbone of Canada’s 3MT

Canada’s 3MT competitions at individual schools are more than just contests. Participating grad schools hold workshops, organize individual coaching and practice sessions. Whether it is an elevator pitch, a job interview or explaining your work to your community – a clear, engaging style can change a mind, spark an interest or sell an idea. And for most of us, it is a skill that only comes with practice.

Is there a 3MT going on at your school? Here’s a contact list of participating institutions. A separate francophone competition is sponsored by our partner ACFAS.
