ACS Events

The ACS organises several events every year related to either history or immigration/diversity. Foremost among these events is our annual national conference on the teaching of history which usually takes place in October/November. This unique conference is organised each year with a local teachers’ association and is a gathering place for anyone working directly or indirectly in the teaching or disseminating of Canadian history: front line educators, authors, researchers, academics, students, policymakers, journalists, archivists, librarians, etc. Another key ACS event is the Metropolis conference, the organisation of which we have taken over in 2012. An immensely relevant conference for anyone working in the fields of diversity, immigration, integration and settlement, Metropolis gathers over 800 people every year in March to discuss key issues in these fields. Visit this page often to get timely information on these events, and on a series of other events we organise throughout the year.
