Join the CPA and approx. 1,500 of your colleagues at Canada’s largest gathering dedicated to those involved in the science, practice and education of psychology in Canada – The CPA National Convention and the CPA Marketplace trade show.

In conjunction with the 4th North American Correctional and Criminal Justice Psychology Conference (NACCJPC), we’re gathering together from May 31-June 2 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Halifax, an Atlantic Ocean port in eastern Canada, is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. A major business centre, it’s also known for its maritime history. The city is dominated by the hilltop Citadel, a star-shaped fort completed in the 1850s. Waterfront warehouses known as the Historic Properties recall Halifax’s days as a trading hub for privateers, notably during the War of 1812. Halifax boasts the friendliness of a small town with the amenities, culture and opportunities of a modern urban centre, and a reputation as an energetic, caring community that embraces creativity and innovation.

This year’s CPA National Convention is one you won’t want to miss. Not only will you get to hear from a who’s-who list of Keynote and Featured Speakers, but you’ll also have the unmatched opportunity to choose from Pre-Convention Workshops, Workshops, Symposia, Posters, Digital Posters, and  CPA Section Annual Meetings. This is your unique opportunity to:

  • LEARN more about best practices
  • GROW your standing within the profession by increasing your knowledge, profile and visibility
  • SHARE innovation happening in your community
  • NETWORK with peers and subject matter experts from coast to coast to coast.
  • CONNECT with your national association and gain new insight into your profession’s challenges and needs

At times it may feel like a particular situation you are facing may be unique, but the truth is that many others across Canada face similar or identical situations and/or challenges. Don’t miss this chance to take advantage of numerous opportunities to meet, learn from, and exchange views with others involved in the science, practice and education of psychology from across the country.

This year, in order to enhance your convention experience, we’re providing new, more interactive ways to meet with colleagues and guest speakers.
