Geographers apply their spatial thinking and competencies to a long list of careers, contributing to education, business, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies.  Be inspired by these profiles, geographers who have found success applying geography to their profession.

The Canadian Geographer (TCG) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes cutting edge geographic research with strong contemporary resonance. We welcome papers that challenge the status quo, promote social justice and address significant social, scientific and technical issues in Canada and globally.

The CAG has a number of awards and grants that provide the opportunity to give national recognition to geographers doing outstanding work in the field. 


Each year, the CAG announces the award winners at the Annual Conference.

Land Acknowledgement from the President


Greetings from the traditional unceded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, part of the Dakelh (Carrier) First Nations. As a settler scholar of Irish ancestry, I am offering this Land Acknowledgement to call attention to the colonial relations that continue to pervade the place I call home, and to commit to do my part to unsettle colonial land relations in Canada. I encourage members of the CAG who, like me, are settler scholars to reflect on the territory in which you live, to be mindful always of land relations, and to consider your own responsibilities with respect to the ongoing implications of colonial relations for First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. To learn more about the territory where you live, please visit https://native-land.ca/.
