Welcome to the CAPS/ACPP homepage
CAPS/ACPP is a volunteer-run, non-profit professional association that advocates on behalf of Canadian postdoctoral scholars for a wide range of career paths. CAPS/ACPP strongly believes in the value of advocacy work for Canadian postdocs.
The mandate of CAPS/ACPP is to improve the lives, career development, and work experience of all Canadian postdocs. The vision that guides this mandate is one of a strong community in which all Canadian postdocs are provided fair compensation, benefits, rights, privileges, and protections, as well as a supportive social network and effective support and career development opportunities.
The 2020 National Postdoc Survey is now published
