It seems like an interesting idea although I’m not sure how it differs from any of our other science festivals but this year’s (2020) edition of Canada’s Science Literacy Week will run from Sept.21 – 27, 2020, From the home page,
B is for Biodiversity
This year’s theme is biodiversity. We’re partnering with organizations from across Canada to offer content that will inspire you!
Bridging art and science
Download our collection of posters that aim to illustrate and explain in a fun, colorful and simple way some of modern science’s most interesting phenomenons.
Here’s more from their About page,
Science Literacy Week showcases the diversity of Canadian science and the culture it’s embedded in. Libraries, museums, science centres, schools and not-for-profits come together to highlight the books, movies, podcasts and events that convey the excitement and influence of science in our everyday lives. It’s about each and everyone’s unique relationship with science and how they live it.
The 2019 Science Literacy Week was celebrated with oceans as the theme. It included over 650 events put on by more than 300 partners in 250 cities across Canada.
The 2020 event seems to be a more low key affair than 2019’s. At the time of this writing (Monday, Sept. 7, 2020), most of the events are online and most (but not all) are being presented by agencies and institutions that reside in central Canada (Ontario and Québec).
You can check out the current list of events but don’t bother establishing any search parameters, use the list of event dates. Scroll down past the search parameters to the dates and events and, if you don’t find something local, click on the ‘Load more events’ button.

I believe the ‘week’ is a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) initiative. NSERC and the Canadian Wildlife Federation are partnering to present the 2020 edition.
