2021 Final Program

We are also pleased to share with you our registration site:


Please read on for a few words on our registration policy.

Membership to the CPS: We ask that you join the CPS to participate in the conference. You can join here: http://bit.ly/CPSmembership  

However, in recognition of the hardship caused by the pandemic for many members of our population research communities, we have implemented the following mitigation measures with regards to membership fees:

- CPS 2020 memberships were extended into 2021. You may verify your membership status at http://bit.ly/CPSmembership.

- If you are not yet a member of the CPS and you do not have access to an institutional source of funding to reimburse your registration or membership, we offer a new member category with a bundled registration and discounted one-year membership fee. Look for the 'Non-Member, Discount rate' and 'Non-Mbr, Student Discount' rates.

Hardship due to the pandemic: We also factored in the impact of the pandemic on our registration fees. Based on a consultation with our members, the CPS is not holding its meeting as part of Congress this year, thus saving our members these additional registration fees.

We have maintained the same CPS registration fees as in previous years ($50 for regular and $25 for student/retired members, respectively), with a slight increase due to the fees charged by this ticketing platform. However, the CPS anticipates a revenue shortfall for 2021. This is due to the costs for holding a virtual conference, maintaining our membership in the Federation, and extending 2020 CPS memberships into 2021.

We therefore ask for your help if you are in a position to support the CPS. If you have unused travel funds from your institution or grants, please consider registering in the 'Regular Fee' category.

All that said, if you find yourself unable to attend for financial reasons, please reach out to the Program Chair to discuss options.

 If you have any queries, feel free to contact Amélie Quesnel-Vallée (organizer) at amelie.quesnelvallee@mcgill.ca.



The CPS strongly encourages all persons participating in the Conference to "renew" their membership fees.   All attendees to the conference are expected to be paid members of the Association.
