The Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) strives to support member participation in the annual Conference by recognizing the diversity and barriers that may impact historically marginalized populations. The information regarding the programs below are subject to change.
Black and Indigenous Student Members
Congress and the CSA are offering student members (Undergraduate, MA, or PhD students) identifying as Black or Indigenous, complimentary Congress delegate registration to attend our Conference. Membership in the CSA is required. Contact us to learn more
Childcare Policy & Subsidy
In collaboration with the Feminist Sociology Research Cluster and Women’s Caucus, the Canadian Sociological Association will implement several initiatives to support members with childcare responsibilities to facilitate their participation in the Conference.
Community members who identify as Black or Indigenous may be eligible for a complimentary delegate pass to attend open Congress events. This would not provide access to the full Canadian Sociological Association Conference sessions but only those designated as open Congress events.
Contact Congress to learn more
Conference Participation Subsidy
The CSA has set aside funds generated from the ‘Full-time Academic – Sponsor’ membership registration category to subsidize the cost of Congress delegate registration fees for eligible members in precariously employed positions.
Student Travel Grant Program
In order to support student participation in the Canadian Sociological Association Annual Conference, the CSA Executive provides financial assistance for travel expenses. Funds are limited and are therefore allocated based on applicant eligibility and criteria determined by the CSA Student Concerns Subcommittee.
