The Canadian Phytopathological Society

The Canadian Phytopathological Society (CPS) is a scientific society that was formed in 1929 as a nonprofit organization to enable plant pathologists to meet and discuss their common interests in teaching and research of plant diseases. CPS has more than 400 members in Canada and abroad, and the Society is entirely run by volunteers.

Its membership has expertise in all facets of plant pathology, and includes a wide variety of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, technical assistants, extension plant pathologists, research scientists, and professors from federal and provincial governments, universities, and companies involved with plant health.
