Note on COVID-19

We encourage everyone to follow the public health recommendations of their country. Please be assured that we continue to closely monitor the guidance issued by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ontario Health Authority, and will provide updates if there are any implications for the CPA 2020 Conference. We are also exploring virtual/online options.

CPA 2020 Virtual Conference

In view of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Critical Perspectives on Accounting Conference is moving online.

The decision to hold the conference online, rather than cancel it, has been made in order to provide members of the critical accounting community with the chance to connect with each other during these challenging times.

Shifting the conference online means that we will now feature a much reduced number of papers, in order to keep things manageable and to respect the energy levels of our community members.

It is with great regret that many worthy papers will not be allocated a time slot, due to the constraints of this conference format. Nonetheless, we have continued to seek review comments, which we will be distributing. It is a pleasure to report that we have had a wonderful response to reviewer requests. Thank you!

Our intention is to offer three sessions each day, chosen to align with time zones from Europe to Australia. This will permit scholars from all over the world to participate in at least one of the sessions each day, regardless of their own time zone. All sessions will be conducted on Zoom.

A detailed schedule will be announced shortly, as soon as we have confirmed the availability of our keynote speakers.


The Emerging Scholars Colloquium will also be moving online. Invited participants have already been contacted and provided with details.
