Canadian Geomatics Jobs

    We have just completed our fourth annual Back to School Socials across Canada and our community continues to grow and thrive.  I was fortunate to have visited 7 of the 12 events this year.  I'm always impressed by the caliber of the leadership in our groups as well as the enthusiasm of the participants.  These events are where we welcome new and returning students as well as grads to our sector.  Next year will be a special occasion as we mark the 5th anniversary of these events from coast to coast. We will also be welcoming new groups in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick to the family this month. If you are interested in supporting the...

    Everyone on our team is excited to introduce a new GoGeomatics group to the Canadian geomatics community. Our newest Group is the Regina GoGeomatics Networking Group in Saskatchewan. It has been a decade or more since a GIS group was in action in Regina (we think) – and Regina as well as Saskatchewan are continuing to grow! So without further fanfare we’d like to introduce our new group leaders, James Ashton and Brianna Kelly.

Notably, there have been efforts by...

    Recently graduated? Starting out in your geomatics career? Here is a view from the other side. For the past 10 years or so, I’ve been in a position where I’ve had the privilege and opportunity to hire and manage staff. I’ve worked in the geomatics field for over 20 years in both the public and the private sector. I’ve learned a few things along the way that you might find worth considering as you go about applying for jobs and attending interviews. Some of my thoughts might come off sounding a bit harsh. I do understand that, behind every résumé is a person who is looking for a new opportunity in their career and/or simply looking...

    Last year I volunteered as a GIS Specialist with ReForest London during the planting season. I am a recent graduate from the University of Toronto where I majored in Environmental Studies and Human Geography. I also hold a post-graduate certificate in GIS.  I believe more community organizations like ReForest London should incorporate GIS into their projects. To do that I will discuss how ReForest London uses GIS effectively. How ReForest London Uses GIS ReForest London partners with the community in order to enhance the environmental and human health of the city through the planting of trees. Tree planting can improve human...
