Annual Scientific Meeting

A highlight of CGU membership is the Annual Scientific Meeting, which provides the opportunity to network with Earth Scientists from across the country. Collaborative and networking opportunities are enhanced by hosting meetings jointly with complementary scientific societies. In 2023 the CGU will be joined by the CSAFM.

Meetings provide the opportunity to:

  • Present current research to geoscientific colleagues  and learn about the activities of other geoscientists.
  • Emphasize Canadian-focused research alongside global research
  • Recognize and support winners of CGU awards and student paper awards
  • Attend invited lectures such as the Woo Lecture (Hydrology) and presentations from our invited plenary speakers
  • Attend information sessions held by granting agencies
  • Participate in annual Section and Executive meetings.
  • Participate in workshops relevant to geophysics and Earth Science disciplines.
