The 2006 CANUMUN conference took place in Ottawa from March 1-4, and was attended by hundreds of students from all over Canada. As the delegate representing Nunavut premier Paul Okalik, Megan attended the all-French session on the council of the Federation. Her group, comprised of the delegates representing six other provincial premiers, drafted two resolutions during the conference, one dealing with the separatist movements in Canada and the other discussing same-sex marriage in Canada. Overall, the conference was a valuable learning experience that was thoroughly enjoyed.
