Pre-convention workshops will take place from May 31st – June 5th, 2021 and will require separate registration.

Throughout the virtual event, join the CPA and your peers and colleagues from coast to coast, from the comfort of your own computer, to learn, grow, share, and connect to those engaged in the science, practice, and education of psychology in Canada.

The CPA’s 2021 Virtual Series will feature over 500 presentations, including opportunities for live chats and discussions with select speakers. New content will be released each week, including 2-3 plenary addresses per week.

Registration for the event will allow you unlimited access to the content.  Access to the virtual event will be restricted to registered individuals; all individuals (complimentary and paying, presenters and non-presenters) will be required to register.  Registration will allow access to all live, pre-recorded sessions and PDF-ed sessions/documents (e.g., Posters, Snapshot).

We hope that you will join us, as a presenter or participant, at our virtual convention. We hope too, that in these challenging times, the event gives members, students, and affiliates an opportunity for knowledge exchange and community, as well as a chance to recognize and celebrate all psychological science, practice, and education has to offer. 

We look forward to hosting you.  For any questions at all, please contact
