The Student Advisory Council at the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP SAC) was officially launched in June 2019 with the intention to represent Canada’s Physics Students and make their needs more visible to CAP’s board of directors. Thus, CAP can provide Canada’s Physics Students with helpful resources, activities and events, as well as help them succeed in their careers!

February is Black History Month. The SAC has therefore created a historical series that honours the legacy of Black physicists and their contribution to physics and science in general. The first physicist featured is George Carruthers, a space scientist that worked for NASA.

Applications are open for the Optica Women Scholarship. 20 Optica Women Scholars are selected annually and receive a merit and need-based grant. Applications can be submitted on and are due January 31!

Our problem competition submission deadline has been extended to January 15th! See our website ( for more information.

Bids to host CUPC 2023 are now open!
