Each year, the CPS holds a competition for the best student paper, awarding the winner with a $500 cash prize. Further details on the competition are included in the Call for Papers. Session themes for CPS 2021 include mortality; morbidity and health; family; immigration and migration; social diversity; labour market and education; fertility; Indigenous demographics; sex, gender and sexuality; COVID-19 and other topics.
