Welcome to the homepage of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU), dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of geophysical research.
The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held July 8-18, 2019 at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures and a wide variety of themed sessions.
We represent the interests of Canadian geoscientists through annual scientific meetings, awards programs, interactions with funding agencies, and advocating for the role of science in society and policy-making. We particularly encourage student participation through travel grants to the annual meeting, and an extensive series of student awards.
Earth Sciences are key to Canada’s prosperity, safety, sustainability, and sovereignty. Understanding Earth Science processes forms the basis of efficient and effective management of Earth’s resources, and allows us to reduce risk and hazards from more devastating Earth system processes.
