Forum Overview

This event is an opportunity for the leadership of academic staff associations to meet peers from across Canada, share high level discussion on key political and organizational challenges, and build networks of contact and support — all with the goal of strengthening our ability to advance the interests of our members. Through presentations and plenary discussions, this year’s Forum will explore recent bargaining trends, legal developments affecting academic staff, handling employer requests for medical information of members, advancing equity, promoting collegial governance, and exploring debates about free speech and academic freedom on campus.
