For nearly sixty years deans, associate deans, administrators, faculty members, researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students have gathered at our annual conference to learn and share ideas about the future of graduate education in Canada. Despite the immense difficulties presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, CAGS is committed to continuing this longstanding tradition.

The 58th Annual CAGS Conference will include all of the elements typically featured at our in-person conference, as well as some new opportunities to share, learn, and connect with colleagues and friends. We are excited to leverage a sophisticated virtual platform to offer an expanded slate of workshops, panel presentations, and keynote addresses, as well as award ceremonies, special guest speakers, and interactive social events. The conference will bring together a diverse community of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, researchers, administrators, faculty members, and deans from across Canada who share an interest in transforming graduate education post-pandemic. Conference content will be offered in both French and English, and each event will feature integrated remote simultaneous interpretation.

Topics of discussion at our annual conference will include:
·     Adaptation, resiliency, and perseverance

·     Reimagining graduate education

·     Transforming academic culture

·     Mental health and wellbeing

·     Inclusion, diversity, and equity

·     Anti-black racism and racial equality

·     Indigenization of the academy and support for Indigenous students

·     Graduate supervision and mentorship

·     Broadening perspectives on dissertations and the PhD

·     Career awareness and professional development
