The Nova Scotia Debating Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization that encourages debating among Nova Scotian high school students. We sponsor debating camps, workshops, coaching clinics, and tournaments. As a member of the Canadian Student Debating Federation, we send teams to regional, national and international debating events. Our delegates have achieved considerable competitive success, winning Canadian, North American and even World Championships.
