Teams to Register

Welcome to the website of the Ontario Pro-Con Debating Forum. The Forum was founded in 1960 and has long been an excellent training ground for high school debaters from public, Catholic, and private schools in the Greater Toronto Area. Students debate in Novice, Junior, Senior, and "Friendly" divisions, allowing students of varying abilities to compete at appropriate levels. The four annual tournaments allow students to develop their debating and speaking skills over time and in a friendly and competitive league.
