The section exists to further research in Social and Personality Psychology and to foster relationships among Canadian researchers in these areas. The section organizes a one-day preconference to the annual meeting of the Canadian Psychological Association. The line-up of speakers is always stellar and the preconference offers students and faculty a smaller venue for presentation and interaction prior to the larger meeting. The section also provides awards for the best undergraduate (Ken Dion Award) and graduate (Brendon Gail Rule Award) submission to the annual meeting, and maintains a newsletter, website, and listserv.
