Royal Canadian Geographical Society

The Royal Canadian Geographical Society is dedicated to imparting a broader knowledge
and deeper appreciation of Canada — its people and places, its natural and cultural
heritage and its environmental, social and economic challenges.
The Society is one of Canada’s largest non-profit educational organizations and is funded
primarily by membership fees and generous donations. The Society’s Board of Governors
and its program committees are comprised entirely of volunteers.


  • Education – increasing the emphasis on geography in Canadian schools and the need for geographic literacy.
  • Expeditions – providing grants to adventurous expeditions that expand our knowledge of Canada.
  • Research – providing grants to university students for geographical research in Canada.
  • Speaker Series – presenting illustrated talks across Canada on geographical subjects of popular interest.
