The 2023 Annual meeting will be held in-person at York University, Thursday, June 1 and Friday, June 2, 2023. We will have plenty of reasons to celebrate, as this conference marks our 90th anniversary and our return to in-person after a few years of online conferences. We hope many of our members will be able to join us. Further details will be added to this page as they are known.
