Chapters

There are CAPAL Student Chapters at LIS schools across Canada. If there is not one at your school, we encourage you to get in touch and start one in your area! The process is easy; according to the CAPAL By-Laws, all you need is 5 student members to start a chapter. Submit a quick email with the names of the interested students to the CAPAL Board of Directors, and you will be all set.

Chapters provide their fellow students with opportunities for networking, professional development, and involvement with relevant advocacy issues. These special interest groups also offer a community for students with similar career interests. With CAPAL membership, there are opportunities to connect with students at other LIS schools, recent graduates, and working professionals.
