CAP Statement on the Ukraine Situation

The Canadian Association of Physicists decries the situation in Ukraine in the strongest terms and we wish to express our deepest solidarity with the Ukrainian people. We speak on behalf of the Physics Community in Canada and especially on behalf of Canadian physicists with family, friends and collaborators in Ukraine.

We commend all institutions that offer a program in support of physicists in distress due to war, oppression, and persecution, as has been done, for example, by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC): , or the Centre de recherche mathématiques/Institut des sciences mathématiques: .

The CAP promotes the values of collaboration, openness and scientific diplomacy across borders as drivers of peace.
