Theory CANADA 1 is the inaugural of a series of annual conferences organized by the Division of Theoretical Physics of the Canadian Association of Physicists. The conferences are planned to be held annually immediately preceding the CAP Congress, and will be held at the regional Institute or Center for Theoretical Physics that is appropriate. The host institute for 2005 is the Pacific Institute for Theoretical Physics, while for 2006 the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics will host the conference. Funding for the conference has been obtained from a pan-Canadian source of Institutes of theoretical physics.

The motivation for such a conference is to enable researchers to get together and interact with their colleagues from across Canada as well as from across the spectrum of theoretical physics. Geographic separation and sheer distance are formidable barriers to collaborative research and to a fruitful exchange of ideas. Theory CANADA will bring together a large cross section of Canadian theoretical physicists who can report on their activities annually. We hope furthermore that the conference will provide a useful forum for discussion of the state of and the future of Canadian theoretical physics.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Canadian Journal of Physics.
