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. Learn more about CPS.


The Canadian Population Society seeks to promote the study and development of the science of demography in both its empirical and theoretical aspects.  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.

On an annual basis, this society meets to foster interest in, and the interchange of ideas on population, among professional and other interested persons working in the field of population studies.

The next annual meetings of the CPS will be held at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Calgary in the province of Alberta. 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.
