CPA 2019

The 2019 Conference for the Canadian Psychological Association is being held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada from May 31 - June 1, 2019 

LGBTQ Programming at CPA

SOGII is co-hosting a pre-conference with a number of other sections focused on diversifying and decolonizing the field of psychology. The pre-conference takes place on Thursday, May 30th. For more information or to register, please click here.

As always, the regular CPA convention has a wealth of LGBTQ programming. Below you will find the SOGI and LGBTQ Program that you can download. Please note that not all of the LGBTQ-relevant programming is within the SOGI section, so sometimes more than one talk will be taking place at the same time.

Student Awards

The SOGII Section will present our annual student awards during the 2019 Convention. Each award is usually for $250.00 CAD, paid in the form of a cheque or a gift card. Award amounts are subject to availability of funds each year. These awards include the following:

  • Best Student Oral Presentation (long)

  • Best Student Oral Presentation (short / data blitz)

  • Best Student Poster Presentation

  • The Morrison Award for LGBTQ-Inclusive Research Methods in a poster presentation presented outside of the SOGII section.

To apply for one of the above prizes, please send a copy of your abstract, presentation (poster or slides), to
