Toronto Branch workshops are full-day affairs, where you’ll have the opportunity to attend a number of sessions by several speakers. Workshops focus on one geographic region, subject area, or type of research.

Workshops are big events, with 100 or more participants. But there are lots of opportunities to ask questions and share information with the group. Many workshops feature one or two “big name” speakers who are renowned for their expertise—some from the British Isles, the United States, or other parts of Canada—but some of the best speakers are members of Toronto Branch.

Each year Toronto Branch’s education committee plans one or two workshops and invites proposals for presentations. The selection committee puts together a program to appeal to researchers with a variety of skill levels and interests.

Our workshops are popular! We recommend that you register early. It is quick and easy with our online system. You can pay with your credit card, PayPal account, or print the form and send us a cheque. (Just follow the links for each workshop.)
