Welcome to The Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology
We, as Members of The Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology /L’Association Canadienne d’Anthropologie Physique (CAPA-ACAP), recognize that while race is a biological fallacy, it is a sociocultural reality with profound lived consequences. Racism is real. The structural racism present in Canada has direct biological and social consequences that disproportionately affect individuals of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities.
This web site is designed to represent our Association, as well as to provide information relevant to the discipline of Physical Anthropology, particularly as it is practiced in Canada. We have a large and dynamic membership that includes students, young scholars, and world leaders in this exciting field of research. I hope you will find here the information that you are looking for. If you are just visiting or if you have a serious interest in Physical Anthropology, I would invite you to join our Association, where you will learn even more.
