Temporary Suspension of Lead-Up Events for the RWL12 Conference

Due to the recent decision of the Canadian Association of University’s (CAUT) to impose the censure of the University of Toronto for its violation of academic freedom, the RWL12-Toronto Conference Organizing Committee has elected to halt its Lead-Up events.

We look forward to the resolution of the situation. Please check back on this website for future updates and/or sign up for our email alerts here.


The 12th International Researching Work & Learning Conference (RWL12) will take place at the University of Toronto, July 13-15, 2022.


The conference aims to bring leading researchers together to explore contributions to theory, policy and practice revolving around our main theme of Work, Learning & Social Change. 


Please explore our conference sub-themes to see the many ways your work can make a contribution. We invite your proposal submissions and hope you will join us at RWL12.
