CAG Annual Meeting
A national meeting is held in a different location each year at the end of May, beginning of June, often in conjunction with the Learned Societies. At these meetings, research is presented, ideas exchanged and CAG business transacted. Field trips are also an important part of the programme.

2018 Annual Meeting
The International Geographical Union (IGU) has unanimously approved Québec City to host its 2018 regional conference.
The event, which will run August 6-10, 2018 at the Québec City Convention Centre, will be the first IGU conference held in North America in two decades.
Québec City’s bid to become a host city was backed by the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG), Regroupement des géographes du Québec, and the geography department at Université Laval. It was organized and secured by two tenured Université Laval geography professors—Dr. Laurent Bourdeau and CAG executive committee member Dr. Matthew Hatvany—and Jocelyn Guertin, international market account executive with the Québec City Convention Centre.
The conference is expected to draw approximately 2,000 geographers from around the world. Organizers hope for an uptick in French-speaking delegates thanks to the location.
