The Graduate Association for Recreation and Leisure Studies (GARLS) is pleased to announce the Twenty-fourth Annual Graduate Student Leisure Research Symposium to be held April 28, 2016 with keynote speaker Brett Lashua. We invite graduate students (and senior undergraduate student pursuing research) interested in any aspect of leisure, recreation, sport, and tourism research to make a presentation at the Symposium, and to take advantage of this unique opportunity for scholarly and professional growth.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
