A Note Regarding 2016 CAPS Conference

The purpose of this message is to state both RAPS and RPGSA’s position with regard to issues and concerns raised about the upcoming CAPS 2016 conference.

RAPS and the RPGSA are strongly discouraging all Ryerson M.Pl, BURPl, PLAB and PLAD students, and SURP faculty from attending the CAPS 2016 conference in Banff, Alberta.

This position was developed in three ways: through ongoing discussions with planning student associations from across Canada; through consultation with the M.Pl. student body on November 10, 2015; and through a RAPS meeting on November 9th, where recent undergraduate concerns about the conference were brought up and addressed.
