Our subject matter interest groups unite people in the same specialty no matter where they are in Canada. Subject divisions hold their own symposia, and sponsor awards, scholarships, and competitions to promote interest and excellence in their fields. By connecting with a subject division, you’ll be able to explore your area of expertise in even more depth and enjoy connecting with people with a similar background.

You can become a member of a subject division when you join by selecting one on your application, or you can contact us to be added to one whenever you like.

Once you’re part of a subject division, you’ll receive emails that connect you to unique activities, special events, and news.
