56th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association

2024 Conference Sponsorship


CAA/ACA 2024 Saskatoon; Artist: Chris Chipak (@inchipakwetrust)The Saskatchewan Archaeological Society, in collaboration with the University of Saskatchewan Department of Anthropology is honoured to host the 56th Annual Canadian Archaeological Association (CAA) conference. This conference will see guests from across Canada and the United States as well as international visitors gathering from May 01st – 05th, 2024 at the Delta Marriott Hotel Downtown in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This is a great opportunity for businesses and organizations to show commitment and support for this endeavour and we are looking for sponsors to showcase the best of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and the heritage community.

Founded in 1968, the CAA is Canada’s national archaeological organization whose membership includes professional, avocational, and student archaeologists, as well as members of the public, from any country, who support the objectives of the Association. These objectives include promoting activities advantageous to archaeological heritage, sharing archaeological information, and encouraging discourse and discussion among societies and agencies in the promotion of archaeological research and conservation. The CAA also works to foster cooperation and collaboration with Indigenous Peoples and to stimulate interest in and understanding of archaeology for the general public. For more information on the CAA, please check them out here: https://canadianarchaeology.com/caa.

The CAA conference was last held in Saskatchewan 27 years ago and we are excited to once again bring together archaeologists, students, heritage practitioners, community members, and the public for this event. We are looking forward to having this be a welcoming, inclusive, and accessible experience with a mix of academic style presentations, plenary speakers, workshops, social events, and tours (please see tentative schedule). Sponsorship from your organization or business shows your support for the conference and demonstrates a commitment to archaeological heritage and our efforts to ensure this remains an affordable, accessible event for all participants. It is also an opportunity to gain exposure and build relationships. The attached information sheet and sponsorship form outlines the different conference and event sponsorship options and their benefits. We have also included two advertising packages if this is more suitable, and gifts in kind are also welcome.  

If you would like to further discuss conference sponsorship or advertising, or require additional information, you can contact me at 306-664-4124 or at CAA2024@TheSAS.ca. Thank you kindly for your consideration of this request.

Yours in heritage,

Dr. Tomasin Playford, CAA 2024 Fundraising Committee Chair
