Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

Connections North


CONNECTIONS NORTH is a community of practice devoted to the professional use of wargames (and other serious games) for education, training, and policy analysis in Canada. It is open to professional game designers, military and other government personnel, researchers, NGOs, and others associated with professional (war)gaming.

If you would like to join the electronic group, contact Rex Brynen (McGill University/PAXsims), including a few lines describing your background and professional interest.

CONNECTIONS NORTH also hosts an annual conference, usually at McGill University in mid-February, on professional wargaming, conflict simulation, and serious games.

CONNECTIONS NORTH 2022 will take place online on 19-20 February 2022. Register via Eventbrite. Registration is free.
