Canadian Sociological Association

The Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) is a professional association that promotes research, publication and teaching in Sociology in Canada.

Our membership comes mainly from sociology departments in Canadian universities, but there is a notable and welcome group from other social science departments, community colleges, from a wide range of non-academic settings (government, NGO, and private sector) and from abroad. The total membership is approximately 1,000.

Existing members (from 2010 to 2016): You will need to reset your password the first time that you login to Forum.


NEW - May 2020

As part of the package of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity (EDI) related reforms, the CSA’s membership form is an opportunity to assess the success of the CSA in attracting members who reflect the diversity of Canadian sociology, to develop initiatives to support members belonging to socially marginalized groups, and to resist the structures of inequality that govern our everyday lives. The data collected will be optional. We commit to reporting these data only in aggregate form that does not identify any members. We will use any data collected to improve programs and services to reflect the diversity of the membership as well as ensure representation within the governing bodies of the CSA.
