Join us at the GoGeomatics Back to School Cross-Canada Socials this September

To kick off the new school year, GoGeomatics is welcoming everyone to our Canada-Wide Back to School Socials this September. We encourage new and returning students to come out to this free event and enjoy a much-needed study-break. Mingle with students from other programs, industry professionals, and managers. The Canadian geomatics community is close-knit, and these socials are a great way to build up contact for co-op placements, internships, and jobs. Not a student? That’s okay, you’re invited too! Come out, meet some students and help welcome them into the industry. We would love to see people from all areas of geomatics like GIS, remote sensing, and surveying at this community event.

Like free stuff? So do we! You’ll enjoy free snacks at this event, and you’ll even have the opportunity to win some great prizes, including t-shirts, career coaching, and more.

The GoGeomatics Back to School Socials will mark the start of a brand new season for GoGeomatics socials across Canada with the help of our sponsors, Esri Canada, Geospatial Advancement Canada 2015, and the Canadian Remote Sensing Society. Across Canada, we are expecting approximately 200 geomatics folks coming together from coast to coast, in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Niagara, Ottawa, and Halifax.

If you’re thinking of coming, please send your RSVP to info@gogeomatics.ca

Take a look at the dates and locations for our Back to School Socials, and mark your calendar!

A Canadian Geographer’s Notes from Nunavut

For the last five years, I have annually had the opportunity to spend time in Iqaluit, Canada’s fastest growing community in Canada’s fastest growing territory or province. On arrival, I check out the selection of new books at Arctic Ventures and the screening of new movies about the North. This year, there was the chance to see John Walker’s Passage and to buy a copy of Darrel Varga’s book of the same name in the Canadian Cinema series.
