About Us

The University of Waterloo Debate Club is a newly founded club in September 2014. We intend to improve our members' public speaking, communication, and critical thinking skills through in-house debates and debate workshops. Our topics of focus will be Business, Politics, and Social Issues. Eventually, we will participate in debate competitions (notably CUSID) to gain live debating experience.

Join us today!


Club meetings will be held every Thursday from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, starting October 2nd (tentatively). Location has yet to be determined. During these meetings, we will be primarily be debating about world events tied to Business, Social Issues, and Politics. Stay tuned for any updates/changes.
