History

The Canadian Association of Latin American Studies (CALAS) was founded at York University on 12 June 1969. In 1976, CALAS became the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS). The Association was the first Canadian organization to bring together scholars and activists from around the world engaged in teaching and research on on Latin America and the Caribbean, with a focus on expanding the study of Latin America and Caribbean in institutions of higher education. The Association holds an annual Congress and has published an interdisciplinary journal, the Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, since 1976.
