Canadian Linguistic Association 2017

This year's meeting of the Canadian Linguistic Association is being held at Ryerson University here in Toronto from May 27th to May 29th. UofT is extremely well represented; searching the schedule for "U Toronto" gives 46 results (!!), and that's not even including alumni.

I'm dividing this into three sections: current UofT linguistics, UofT linguistics alumni, and other departments at UofT.
