As members of the earth science community we are all continually working with the Earth whether we are engaged in research, policy and regulation, expanding the minds of future earth scientists or involved with the petroleum and mining industries.

A fundamental principle is that whatever facet of Earth Science we are part of relies on a symbiotic and fundamental relationship with the Earth that we study.

The Earth provides our minerals and is a primary energy source that has allowed Society to exist and grow, but the extraction of these resources can also impact global systems; as responsible earth scientists we need to understand these effects as we attempt to grow Society in sustainable and responsible ways, while minimizing our footprint on the Earth’s ecosystems.

Only once every ten years does the opportunity to learn from such a broad spectrum of earth science professionals present itself. That opportunity is taking place May 10 – 14, 2009 in Calgary, AB.

Hosted by the CSPG, CSEG and CWLS, GeoCanada 2010 is also co-sponsored by GAC, MAC, IAH-CNC, CFES and CCPG. In addition, over 20 other earth science societies from across Canada are participating in some way, making this a truly national event. Please visit the Conference Structure page for a full list of participating societies.

The Steering Committee on behalf of all the sponsoring societies cordially invites you to participate in GeoCanada 2010 and we look forward to welcoming you to Calgary in May.
