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.

John Porter Book Award Nomination Form

The John Porter Tradition of Excellence Book Award, originally named the The John Porter Memorial Book Prize, was created in 1980 by the Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association in memory of John Porter for the purpose of recognizing outstanding published scholarly contributions within the "John Porter Tradition" to the advancement of sociological knowledge in Canada. Porter, who died in 1979, was arguably the dominant Canadian sociologist of the post World War Two period.

Now known as the Canadian Sociological Association, we invite our members and publishers to submit nominations from October 1, 2019 through January 15, 2020.

Notice to Members: November 21, 2018

Members of the Canadian Sociological Association receive a complimentary subscription to the Association’s journal, the Canadian Review of Sociology.

Effective January 1, 2019, the journal will no longer be offered in print copy.   The decision to move the journal to online only access was made following consultation with the membership in 2016 as well as economic and environmental considerations.

To assist with this transition, the Association will offer long-standing members (those whose memberships have been in good standing since January 1, 2016) the option to continue receiving a printed copy of the journal at no additional cost until January 1, 2020.  If you meet this eligibility requirement and wish to receive the four 2019 journal issues in print format, contact the Association’s Executive Administrator, Sherry Fox, before December 31, 2018 at
