Welcome to the Canadian Population Society  

The Canadian Population Society is a scientific association that seeks to improve knowledge and understanding about the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of human population.  Members of the CPS are typically faculty members of Socoiology or Demography departments in Canada, students of those departments, staff of Statistics Canada & other government bodies. In addition, members come from Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Epidemiology & other unversity departments. Members are eligible to vote in CPS elections, present refereed papers to conferences, and receive a subscription to the Canadian Studies in Population.The association actively welcomes new members, including academics, graduate students, government scientists and administrators, or any other persons interested in demography and its many applications.

2015 Meetings of the Canadian Population Society and the Federtation of Canadian Demographers

The annual meetings of the CPS will be held at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa in the nation's capital Call for Papers: Canadian Population Society Meetings (deadline: January 31, 2015 for abstract submissions).

This year, the Federation of Canadian Demographers shall also be holding their meetings in Ottawa, immediately following the CPS meetings: Call for Papers: Federation of Canadian Demographers (deadline: January 31, 2015 for abstract submissions).

Organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.

The theme for Congress 2015 is "Capital Ideas".  This theme relates to the location of the Congress host: the national capital. 

As the seat of our federal government and of several national agencies, as the home of embassies and of a large number of international organizations, Ottawa boasts a unique environment rooted in the confluence of people and the intersection of ideas from all over the world. This promotes a rich diversity of perspectives and research activities; one significant area of interest is public policy, and it is our hope that Congress 2015 will generate stimulating exchanges on the links between research, policy and society.
