The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is an annual event organized by and for Canadian physics students. It is hosted by a different university each year, usually held over an extended weekend in October (4 days). Physics students from across Canada meet at CUPC to present oral or poster contributions on various topics related to physics, to attend special invited lectures, to tour local research facilities, to meet with representatives from participating institutions that offer graduate degrees in physics, and to meet with a representative of the CAP Executive to learn more about the association and its support of physics in Canada.

The CAP, via its CAP Foundation, provides a cash donation to be distributed, as required, to students who need financial assistance to attend the conference.

Toronto is in the ‘Dish With One Spoon Territory’.  The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land.  Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
