For many, the terms “geography” and “expedition” are synonymous.

Expanding knowledge of Canada’s geography through exploration and scientific expeditions, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society has a long history of funding both major and modest expeditions across the country.

Expeditions grant program

The goal of the RCGS Expedition Program is to enhance the appreciation, understanding and knowledge of the physical, environmental and cultural geography of Canada by recognizing and encouraging the spirit of discovery and adventure through expeditions taking place largely within Canada.

Committee members: 
Zac Robinson (Chair), TA Loeffler (Vice-Chair), John Pollack (Past Chair), Jean-Marie Beaulieu, Lisel Currie, Jill Heinerth, Priidu Juurand, Helen Sovdat

From coast to coast to coast and everywhere in between

In 2024, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society is pleased to award nine applicants with expedition funding and use of the compass rose flag. We are proud to support such a distinguished group of explorers who move through these lands with both curiosity and respect, while challenging their physical ability.
