About the Conference

CSSE’s annual conference is Canada’s largest gathering of researchers, scholars, graduate students, and practitioners in education. Our mandate is to build connections among educational researchers and those in the field, including teachers, education assistants, school psychologists, school and school district administrators, and others. Join this dynamic four-day conference focusing on theory and praxis in every facet of education, including teacher education, educational psychology, curriculum studies, Indigenous education, women in education, educational foundations, educational research, and comparative & international education. Programming includes a special emphasis on knowledge mobilization, designed for educational practitioners and others working in the field. Knowledge mobilization sessions are scheduled on Sunday, June 2nd, to facilitate attendance. Teachers, school psychologists, education assistants, principals, superintendents, and more are very welcome at our conference.

Draft Conference Program

The first draft of the CSSE 2019 conference program is now available. You can use the search feature in Adobe Reader to search for a word in the title or the name of the author.To request minor edits (title, name, spelling, affiliation), please contact the Michael Holden at michaelrobholden@gmail.com. Changes that involve moving sessions are unlikely to be accommodated. If you are no longer planning to present at the conference, please inform Mike Holden and your program chair. The deadline to request minor edits is March 11, 2019.

Program App

We encourage all delegates to use the conference app (to be released later this spring) instead of requesting a print program. Printed copies of the program will only be available for distribution at the conference to registered delegates who have pre-purchased a copy with their registration payment. If you have already registered for Congress but did not pre-purchase a program, you can return to your registration and add that option.

Travel Assistance to Graduate Students

CSSE does offer travel support to graduate students attending the CSSE conference. A form will be available closer to the conference date on the CSSE Web site.


  • A current paid student CSSE member.
  • A paid Congress + CSSE delegate for the current conference.

Expenses covered:

Only the major form of transportation may be declared – plane, train, bus and/or car; taxis to and from points of departure and arrival are not allowed. Claims will be based on receipts submitted with maximums based on gateways fares supplied on the form. Reimbursement will be based on actual money paid for the transportation. We do not reimburse the value of “loyalty” points.

Amount of support:

Since the percentage of reimbursement will not be known until all claims are received and a comparison is made with the amount made available by CSSE, it is impossible to say what is the reimbursement will be. In the past few years, we have been able to reimburse between 23% and 33% of the allowed claim submitted.


  • The Claim for partial travel reimbursement must be completed and received by the CSSE Secretariat by the appropriate deadline [typically the end of June].
  • You will need to provide proof that you are currently enrolled as a student. A student card is acceptable if it indicates the year you are a student. Otherwise please consider a transcript that indicates your enrollment in a current semester (either autumn or winter semester of the current academic year).
  • Receipts must be included with claim.

CSSE reserves the right to adjust any claim to conform to these guidelines.

Payments are typically made in October or November.


Accommodation must be booked through the Congress site: https://www.congress2019.ca/plan-your-trip/accommodations. If you are planning to stay on campus, we recommend that you book your residence room without delay. We understand that some residences are already sold out.
