About TYSI

The Toronto Youth Stem and Innovation (TYSI) Conference is a student-run conference that aims to expose students around the GTA to the exciting developments within tech and other STEM industries as well as introducing them to STEM and innovation leaders and other driven and like-minded students. TYSI, formerly known as the STEMinism Conference, has been held for the past four years, consistently facilitating networking opportunities between 400 students and a variety of engaging and inspiring STEM leaders. Past speakers have included Professor David Cory, the Deputy Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Toronto, and Kathryn Hume, the VP of Strategy at


A new addition to the TYSI Conference is the Innovation Pitch Competition which invites small groups of students to innovate and present solutions in support of UN Sustainable Development Goal #11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. Ideas will be pitched to an incredible panel of judges with experience in STEM industries and entrepreneurship, and deliberations will be held for finalists who will present again in the closing ceremony. The winning team, which will be voted for by both the judges and their peers, will win a prize of $500.

This year, TYSI is being held at the MaRs Discovery District on February 19th, 2019. It will run from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm and a pizza lunch included with ticket purchase. Click here to explore this year’s speakers.
