    GoGeomatics Canada is thrilled to announce the 4th annual series of coast-to-coast Back to School Socials (BTSS) taking place this September. For the past four years it has been the generous support of the Canadian geospatial community that has allowed us to host these events. Our September events kick off the social season for what has quickly become Canada's largest and most popular geospatial networking group.  It is where we come together as a sector and welcome new and returning students to the fold. This year will be the most special of all our events, as we are celebrating 150 years of Canada together. Last year we broke our...

The plaque is affixed to the north-east wall of Head Hall, the UNB engineering building, adjacent to the A-level parking lot.
