Welcome to the submission portal for the

CEA 2024 Conference


The 58th Annual Meetings of the Canadian Economics Association is hosted by the Department of Economics at Toronto Metropolitan University from May 30 to June 1. An online session day will take place on Friday May 24th.  The programme chair is John W. Galbraith (McGill University), and the local organizers are Professor Richard Chisik and Professor Brennan Thompson.  

Visit the conference website for complete conference information.


(1) You will need to create a *new* conference account for your submission.

You are currently on the Abstract Submission Portal. This is a separate portal from the CEA's Membership Account Portal. 
It is important that you use the exact same email address in both systems. Please check your CEA member profile before submitting to the conference, and contact the CEA office at cea.conference@gmail.com if you need help with updating the email address in one/both systems. 

(2) When submitting an abstract you will be asked if your paper is for the online sessions or the in-person sessions. Once the deadline to submit has passed (February 15), you will not be able to make changes to your presentation format.


Please note that only one abstract may be submitted.  Abstracts can be submitted in either French or English.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Paula Emery at cea.conference@gmail.com


Note for International Authors:

The current wait times for Visas can be prohibitively long and may not arrive in time for you to attend the CEA 2024 in-person conference.  International presenters who require an invitation letter to attend in-person should apply for the online conference instead.
