The Royal Canadian Geographical Society
Founded in 1929, the Society is a non-profit educational organization. Its object is to advance geographical knowledge and, in particular, to stimulate awareness of the significance of geography in Canada’s development, well-being and culture. Primary fields of interest include our people, resources, environment, heritage and the evolution of our country. In short, the aim is to make Canada better known to Canadians and to the world. Canadian Geographic, the Society’s magazine, is dedicated to reporting on all aspects of Canada’s geography — physical, biological, historical, cultural and economic — and on major issues of concern to Canada in which geographical dimensions play a significant role.
