Congress 2019, in association with the Annual CCHA Conference, is being held in 2019 at the University of British Columbia. Unrivaled in scope and impact, the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of over 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella.
Now in its 87th year, this flagship event is much more than Canada’s largest gathering of scholars across disciplines. Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.
The Annual Joint-Session Keynote Speaker, this year welcoming University of Aberdeen’s Colin Barr, will be held in Buchanan B building – Room 313 at 8:25.
The CCHA Annual Conference will be held Wednesday June 5 and Thursday June 6, 2019 also in Buchanan B building but in room 310. Be sure to check out our complete program in the link below.

OFF-SITE TOUR: ST. PAUL’S INDIAN CHURCH (depicted in the painting above)
We welcome all members and guests of the CCHA to join us on the tour that precedes our Conference. On June 4th, we will begin our day getting caught up with one another and enjoy a light meal at 12:30 with a pub lunch at Mahoney’s Pub – 5990 University Blvd, on the UBC Campus. We will walk back and leave from Carey Centre at 1:30 pm by van, to the Churches. From there we will travel together to Holy Rosary Cathedral (646 Richards St., Vancouver) where our tour will officially commence at 2pm. Followed by another tour of the historical St. Paul’s Indian Church in North Vancouver.
If for any reason you cannot join us at the start, please reach out to Valerie Burke by text 705-795-9754 to meet us either at Carey Centre prior to the tour or somewhere along the way. For those who are interested, we will also likely have a later evening meal together. If you text Valerie of your interest we should know where we will be gathering after our tour.
