The Canadian Council for Southeast Asian Studies (CCSEAS) brings together scholars, students, policy makers and activists with an interest in the academic study of Southeast Asia and its connections to the rest of the world. The CCSEAS is a part of the Canadian Asian Studies Association (CASA), which also comprises an East Asian Council and a South Asian Council. The CCSEAS organizes a biennial conference and publishes a newsletter twice a year. Recent conferences have been held at the University of Victoria (2001), Université de Montréal (2003), York University (2005), Université Laval (2007), University of British Columbia (2009), University of Toronto (2011) and University of Montreal (2013). The officers of the association are elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Association, conducted during the biennial conference.
