Geological Association of Canada

On February 14, 1947 a group of geologists met at the Engineers' Club in Toronto, Ontario to create the Geological Institute of Canada. The Institute was later renamed the Geological Association of Canada (GAC®) at a second meeting held on March 11, 1947. This meeting resulted in the formation of a preliminary constitution and set of bylaws, election of the first council and the designation of 140 charter members. From the outset, GAC® was designed to fill a role similar to that of the Geological Society of America: bridging a gap between the industry focused Geological Division of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the scientific objectives of Section IV of the Royal Society of Canada.

The Geological Association of Canada (GAC®) was formed in 1947 with the objective to promote, discuss and disseminate geological knowledge.

The Geological Association of Canada (GAC®) is a national multi-disciplinary geoscience organization with representatives in all Canadian Territories and Provinces as well as the United States, Europe and other parts of the world. The GAC® makes significant contributions to the promotion and development of the geological sciences in Canada through publications, awards, conferences, meetings and exhibitions.


Objectives of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC®) :
* to promote the science of geology and closely related fields of study
* to promote the knowledge of its members
* to hold conferences, meetings and exhibitions for the discussion of geologica

The mission of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC®) is to facilitate the scientific well-being and professional development of its members, the learned discussion of geoscience in Canada, and the advancement, dissemination and wise use of geoscien
