Events

Gatherings that push the national agenda

As convenor of the largest research community in Canada, the Federation takes great pride in hosting highly anticipated events that showcase, advance, and celebrate the exceptional work of our members.

Our relationship with the Canadian social sciences and humanities community thrives on engagement, connection, and the exchange of ideas. The events we host allow scholars, policy-makers, and key stakeholders to come together and address the critical issues of our time. Many agree these events are not to be missed.

Along with our comprehensive annual Congress, the Federation's Big Thinking lecture series and yearly Canada Prize awards top the list of events that reach far beyond the typical gathering to significantly shape the direction of our disciplines as practiced in Canada and beyond.
