Canadian Sociological Association Advocacy Policy

Approved by the CSA Executive Committee on January 24, 2014

The Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) is a professional association that promotes research, publication and teaching in Sociology in Canada. Its membership is incredibly diverse, however, they are united by the fact that they work in sociology. The CSA will refrain from adopting an advocacy role on social or political issues that do not directly impact the working conditions of Sociologists in Canada in order to respect the diverse political views of our membership. The CSA Executive may occasionally adopt an advocacy role on issues that directly impact the working conditions of Sociologists in Canada, in relation to their teaching, research and other scholarly activities.
