Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology

The Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology (CAPA) is a learned society of Physical Anthropologists. The society’s mission is to spread information on Physical Anthropology to its members and to supporting institutions and the public at large. The society has annual meetings and distributes newsletters to their members. The group was founded by Canadian members of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, in a 1972 meeting, who thought Kansas was too far away for Canadian Physical Anthropologists to meet and professionally discuss their ideas. Their current president is Robert Hoppa. []
