2) Some highlights from the program

Special SessionsThis year, we will feature two special sessions.

  • “What is applied demography and why does it matter?” (Day 1, May 31, 12:00pm – 1:30pm) This session will describe the many uses of applied demography and show how demographers can play an important role as data analysts in many organizations. (Panelists: Allison Yacyshyn (Concordia University of Edmonton); David Swanson (Portland State University); and and Doug Norris (Environics Analytics))
  • “Examining recent Canadian demographic trends: New developments from Statistics Canada’s Centre for Demography” (Day 2, June 1, 3:15pm – 4:45pm) Statistics Canada’s Centre for Demography will present 4 innovative projects that highlight recent trends in demography as well as new data products.

Poster session & wine reception: On Day 1 (May 31, 5-6:30pm, location: TBA), we will be holding an in-person poster session and wine reception (with a cash bar). A graduate student professional development event also will be integrated to the poster session. 

Banquet (Day 2, June 1, 6pm-, location:TBA): Considering CPS annual meeting attendees’ accommodation locations, we are looking to booking a restaurant that is located between York University Keele Campus and downtown Toronto. We will provide more details of the banquet as they become available.

General AssemblyThe hybrid General Assembly will take place on Day 3 (June 2) at 12:30 pm-1:30 pm ET. This event will feature our annual award presentation and voting on motions. Please plan on attending this important meeting to help us reach quorum. A package will be sent to members at least a week in advance of General Assembly.
