Student Membership in the CPS

The Canadian Population Society is pleased to welcome students of demography into it's membership, with full voting, subscribing & presenting privileges.

The CPS shows it's commitment to students by having a Student Representative on the CPS Council. The current student representative is Yujiro Sano (Western University).  Feel free to contact him if you questions or concerns with regard to the involvement of graduate students in the Canadian Population Society.

There are several advantages to joining the CPS, including the opportunity to attend our annual academic conference and networking with established professionals in the field of demography. The association involves academics, graduate students, government scientists and administrators, among other persons interested in demography and its many applications.  A sizeable proportion of our current membership are employed in the federal government, including Statistics Canada, as well as dozens of university/research institutions/government agencies across Canada. 

Graduate students in sociology/economics/geography/planning and policy, among other related fields are encouraged to participate. 

The CPS also offers an annual Award for the best paper which is announced at the annual Conference.  We also have our Job Postings Board.
