Congress Registration opens April 1st

Registration for the CAP 2017 Congress to be held at Queen’s University, in Kingston from 29 May to 1 June 2017, opens on Saturday, April 1. There are significant savings for members and those who register and pay by midnight (EDT) April 30th.

Membership has its benefits! For full members, the registration rate for the entire conference is $200 less than the rate for non-members. If you register by April 30th, there is a further savings of $50 from the regular registration rates, bringing the full member registration rate to only $385. Student rates are highly discounted and have not increased from last year. Discounted rates are also available for early career, HS/Cegep teachers, and retired members. See for a complete list of registration fees.

For those attendees who are unable to stay for the entire Congress, one-day conference registration is available. For members, these rates have also not changed since last year — the early registration one-day rate for members and invited speakers is $225; member graduate students pay $125, and undergraduate students pay $75.

There is still time for your non-member colleagues to sign-up for membership and obtain the maximum discount on their Congress registration fee. As it can take up to 10 business days to process and activate a membership, new and renewing member applications MUST be received by the CAP office no later than 11:59 PM (EDT) Sunday, April 16, 2017 if they wish to register before April 30th for the early fee. Membership forms are available at

Please start to make your plans to attend this year’s CAP Congress. It will include a public lecture by Art McDonald who shared the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics, numerous interesting plenary sessions and medal talks, the ability to socialise with colleagues from across the country at the welcome BBQ and several evenings during the week, and the opportunity for students and faculty to present and hear about exciting work in their field.

Let’s make CAP 2017 at Queen’s a Congress to remember.
