The Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s mission has stood the test of time, through good times and bad.

As our country undergoes significant change to its population, climate, environment, economy and culture, our aim to “make Canada better known to Canadians and to the world” is as relevant today as ever.

Today, the Society is poised to expand its enviable leadership position, strengthen its relationships with valuable and trusted partners, further embrace its digital transformation and support innovations in geography and research that will transform Canada and contribute to a more sustainable, prosperous future.

The Society is committed to promoting an awareness of our past, the challenges of the present and the opportunities of the future. Our 2020-2025 strategic plan is a recommitment to our mission and vision. With the support of our incredible College of Fellows, the Society at large and the entire Can Geo community, we will build a dynamic, viable and sustainable future. As one of Canada’s largest national educational non-profits, and as publisher of one of its most-read and best-loved magazines, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the power of geography to unite Canadians, inspire future generations and help chart Canada’s future.
