Graduate students are vital as researchers, innovators, teachers, community members, and mentors. In recognition of the important voice of graduate students and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, we are hosting (the inaugural) interdisciplinary and intersectional congress-style graduate student research conference. The themes of the conference align with Canada150 to critically discuss – Diversity and Inclusion, Indigenous Peoples, Youth, and Environment. This conference will provide graduate students with the opportunity to share research, knowledge, and resources; create networks of collaboration; and participate in development opportunities.
