Project Teams

The Confederation Debates relies heavily on volunteers. A dedicated group of esteemed professors compose our oversight committee. Dozens of university and high school students, as well as professionals and retirees from Canada, the US and UK are making important contributions as transcribers, translators, editors, and team managers.

Want to a meaningful contribution to this legacy project? Transcribe a page, or contact us.
