Welcome to uOMUNA

University of Ottawa Model United Nations Association specializes in opening the diplomatic world of United Nations to our members in the form of moderated simulations. We strive to bring the international stage at arm’s length for students, where they can use their tact and negotiation skills to tackle some of the world’s most pressing conflicts. By fostering an inclusive, educational and competitive environment through training sessions and in-houses, we endeavour to empower a new generation of diplomatic leaders. They will, in-turn, represent the University of Ottawa at national and international conferences to debate, create and negotiate in an applied realm. Our goal is to offer external competitions as avenues to members to discover academic growth, peaceful negotiation and increased knowledge of the global citizen.


Weekly Training Sessions

Training Sessions and Advanced Training Sessions offer new opportunities for those who haven’t participated in Model UN and those who have years of experience to come together and learn from our Trainers.

Compete at External conferences

Our externals are weekend-long MUN simulations where delegates attend to create a dialogue on various topics and foster healthy competitions. Our Association offers many externals, please refer to the ‘External Conference” tab.

Monthly In-House conferences

Every month, our Trainers host an in-house, or a mock-UN committee, session wherein members come together to debate the topic at hand. These can include anything from modern news topics to historical events and fantastical crises.

The global work of the United Nations is not without reason compared to that of a family — striving for a common goal in concert with all members for a better future.

Kofi Annan

There are millions of people all over the world, right now, who are looking to the United Nations for protection and redress against the violation of their rights and deprivation of their freedoms.

Louise Arbour

If the United Nations is to survive, those who represent it must bolster it; those who advocate it must submit to it; and those who believe in it must fight for it.

Our Association prides itself in fostering an open, inclusive environment that encourages our delegates to debate, analyze and synthesize the world’s most pressing issues. To achieve this, our dedicated executive team spends the academic year preparing a variety of events and trainings that always keep our delegates in mind. A few examples include: training sessions for those who are new to MUN, advanced training sessions for seasoned members, monthly social events, and an end-of-the year Gala to celebrate our successful term.
