GoGeomatics Canada Networking Social

Join the Canadian geospatial community as we welcome new and returning students to our sector.  This year we are proud to announce that 12 groups are hosting Back to School Events.  We hope that  you, your company or organisation can join us at these fun free networking events. Click the Meetup Info links below for detailed information about your local event. Last year over 400 people participated in the socials.

These are the most popular networking events in Canada for our sector. We get together for drinks and conversation and build a stronger geomatics sector one connection at a time.

It’s the role of good and effective leaders to bring people and communities together.

The GoGeomatics group leaders, editors and writers, communications volunteers, and our sponsors have succeeded in bringing together the Canadian geospatial community.  Not just at one event, but at 12 events stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic.  With everyone’s help GoGeomatics Canada continues to grow and promote the geomatics community in Canada. (Editors note: Discussion for new groups in Fredericton and Regina have begun.)
