It’s time to submit your abstracts! The submission system is now open and closes sharply at 23:59 (Eastern Time) November 30th, 2023. To submit your abstract go to http://convention.cpa.ca/abstract/, and to learn more about what kinds of submissions are being accepted in 2024, details can be found here: http://convention.cpa.ca/scientific-program/presentation-types/.
Important to note: When adding presenters/moderators/authors, please use the email addresses that they intend to use for Convention Registration, which will help to ensure that the presentation is associated with their profile in the scheduling app.
Beginning this year, the CPA will not be accepting submissions for Pre-Conference Professional Development Workshops (PCWs). Instead, our team will be actively seeking out presenters and topics for the Pre-Conference Education Day. We hope this will result in subject matter that is better connected with the needs and interests of members and attendees.
Materials will still be built on a foundation of innovation and information, with a specific focus on relevance to psychological research, teaching, learning, and practice. We are taking this new approach based on an analysis of attendance patterns for recent PCWs, in response to member suggestions, and with an eye toward relevant topics of interest.
The PCW Day will be built around a solid core of specific subject areas that will be available each year starting in 2024, along with a selection of relevant and timely education opportunities that will be renewed annually.
Suggestions for workshop topics are always welcome – if you have an idea, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendees will still be able to register for PCWs and the full Conference program using a single transaction.

The Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) respectfully acknowledges that its Head Office and staff are located on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnabeg Peoples. The CPA is committed to being an association that is accountable to Indigenous peoples through our response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada’s report.
The CPA wishes to acknowledge that Ottawa, the site of the CPA’s 2024 Annual National Convention, is built on the unceded traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe and the people of the Algonquin Anishnabeg Nation which encompasses the watershed of the Kitchissippi (Big River) now commonly known as the Ottawa River. We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers and recognize all Indigenous people in the region, from all Nations across Canada, who make Ottawa their home and who continue to nurture the land with their culture and their presence. We are grateful to come together on this land in a spirit of truth, reconciliation, respect, learning, and collaboration.
