A message from CPA’s President, Dr. David Dozois

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Canadian Psychological Association’s Board of Directors, I would like to invite you to join us in Toronto, Ontario for our 78th Annual National Convention. Come reignite your passion for psychology from June 8-10, 2017 at the beautiful Fairmont Royal York, in the heart of the city.

This year’s convention will feature nearly 1,500 presentations covering the broad spectrum of psychology. Of particular note, our keynotes will include our Honorary President, Dr. Pim Cuijpers, a world-renowned expert on the epidemiology, etiology, prevention, and treatment of depression and a panel of former contestants and staff from Big Brother Canada, who will discuss the importance of psychology in reality television.

As always, the convention will also feature a number of fun activities – you can start your day on the right foot with our Healthy Choices activities, explore the city and make new friends at our “Distillery District Dine-Around,” and reconnect with fellow members at my President’s Welcome Reception.

This year’s convention will certainly be one to remember. Be sure to follow @CPA_Events on Twitter and indicate that you are attending the event on Facebook so you don’t miss a thing.

I look forward to seeing you in June!


David J. A. Dozois, Ph.D., C. Psych.

CPA President’s Welcome Reception
– Wednesday June 7th (20:00 – 21:30)

CPA President, Dr. David Dozois will host an evening reception to welcome all convention delegates.

Kick off the conference with a fun and connecting experience. Reacquaint with colleagues, make plans for where to meet up over the course of the convention, discuss which sessions you plan on attending, plan a night out… this is a “not-to-be-missed” event to that will set the stage for the three days of the CPA National Annual Convention that follow!

Light food and drinks will be served in an informal setting.
