Canadian Energy Geoscience Association

Since 1927, the Canadian Energy Geoscience Association (CEGA), formerly known as the CSPG, has been a member-based association committed to fostering geoscientists’ professional development throughout their careers.

CEGA members, whether they be students or professionals, have access to technical expertise and training through a variety of publications, courses, field trips, technical talks, and conferences. CEGA’s educational offerings are all eligible for CPD hours and both formal and informal activity is tracked through your CEGA membership.

In addition to fostering technical learning, the CEGA provides opportunities for geoscientists to network and connect with their peers in industry. Throughout its history, CEGA has always been proud to promote geoscience in Canada as it relates to energy development and help build a sense of community for all energy geoscientists.

Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists

The objective of the Society is to promote the science of geophysics, especially as it applies to exploration, and to promote fellowship and co-operation among those persons interested in geophysical prospecting.

Canadian Well Logging Society

The CWLS (Canadian Well Logging Society) is the oldest organization devoted to log analysis, incorporated in Calgary, Canada in 1957. In that time the society has endeavoured to produce a technical journal with a Canadian slant. The CWLS is thus an appropriate place for those interested in exploring mineral resources in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, the Canadian Arctic, offshore eastern Canada and southern Ontario.

The society has great support from the petroleum industry with over 4 Corporate sponsors. The CWLS has in turn provided a great deal of support to the petroleum industry. One of our proudest achievements has been a Catalogue of Water Resistivities in sedimentary formations in Canada.

The CWLS holds a Technical Luncheon on the third Wednesday of every month (except in the Summer and February) for the benefit of those interested in log analysis and petrophysics. Notices of the topic of each luncheon are sent to members and posted on this web site.

Currently the CWLS has over 205 members including over 50 Student members from around the world. Most of the activities of the CWLS are performed by Volunteers. The society would like to thank all volunteers for their time and effort in making the CWLS a success.

Geological Association of Canada

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.

Mineralogical Association of Canada

Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC) was formed in 1955 as a non-profit scientific organization to promote and advance the knowledge of mineralogy and the allied disciplines of crystallography, petrology, geochemistry and mineral deposits.

MAC has a commitment to further public awareness of mineral sciences and promote excellence through a comprehensive medals and awards program for bright up-and-coming students to lifelong career scientists; yearly students scholarships and travel/research grants to assist honours undergraduate and graduate students in the mineral sciences.

Through annual meetings, field trips, short courses, summer schools, two publications series, and its journal, The Canadian Mineralogist, the Association provides a forum for the presentation and dissemination of current knowledge and advances to the worldwide community of earth scientists.

Membership in the MAC has expanded to a truly national body with representatives across Canada, and a notable membership in the United States, Europe and in other parts of the world.

International Association of Hydrogeologists - Canadian National Chapter

The International Association of Hydrogeologists – Canadian National Chapter (IAH-CNC) is a branch of the IAH, which is a scientific and educational organization that exists to promote the study and knowledge of hydrogeological science and its application for common good throughout the world. IAH-CNC currently represents approximately 400 professionals across Canada. It is an active organization that offers members a variety of talks, seminars, webinars, networking opportunities, and conferences.
