The CRSA was founded in 1977, and is the only Canadian organization dedicated exclusively to regional research. Members are drawn from the academic, public and private sectors and include economists, geographers, planners, sociologists and political scientists. The CRSA organizes an annual conference, and provides members with other opportunities for interaction and discussion. Members may also enjoy associate membership status in the Western Regional Science Association and Association de Science Régionale de Langue Française. Visit the CRSA website for information on upcoming conferences, membership, and ongoing activities.
The CRSA publishes the Canadian Journal of Regional Science, which provides an outlet for interdisciplinary research on regional and urban issues, encourages academics to undertake research on regional issues, and promotes the exchange of ideas across different academic disciplines. Visit the CJRS website for details on the submission of articles or to subscribe to the journal.
