What is CPSSA?

The Canadian Political Science Students’ Association (CPSSA/AÉSPC) is a non-profit organization run by undergraduate students studying in Canada.

In addition to the conference, the organization publishes its own undergraduate journal called “Expressions”​, and develops a “Graduate Guide”​ for students who require guidance over graduate programs.
