11 Canadian 3MT® Finalists

Three minutes. Eleven of Canada's best minds. The power of the spoken word.


Graduate students from every corner of Canada are doing research that makes a difference in our lives, our communities, our economy and our world.
The 3MT competition offers them a chance to explain their work and why it matters.

A national winner will be chosen by our judges panel: Radio producers Tom Howell and Nicola Luksic, Dr. Danika Goosney - Director General, Science, Knowledge Translation and Ethics at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and lead guitarist for the Tragically Hip, Rob Baker.

You can choose a People's Choice winner. Vote for the presentation that combines the best clarity and relevance.
Voting closes noon PACIFIC May 19 2016. Winners will be announced the week of June 6, 2016.
