The Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium is an annual event organized since 1985 by and for Faculty of Education master's and PhD students to highlight their research projects. University of Ottawa undergraduate students, as well as graduate students from other Ontario and Quebec universities are also invited to take part.

Jean-Paul Dionne was a professor at the University of Ottawa from 1970 until his retirement in 1996. He won the university's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1995. Professor Dionne, who died in 2011, was especially valued for the exceptional support he offered graduate students, his intellectual rigour, and his expertise in statistics. As he was its founder, this annual scholarly event bears his name. The symposium serves as a tribute to Professor Dionne, acknowledging his exceptional contributions to Faculty of Education students.
