The Suzanne Mackenzie Memorial Fund 

Suzanne Mackenzie was a much beloved member of the geographical community, in Canada and internationally, who died at home in Nelson, B.C. on October 24, 1998.

She will long be remembered for her courage, her commitment to feminism, her deep sense of caring for friends, family and students, her sense of justice and right and her irrepressible humour, bound up in a generous spirit.

Every second year, the fund established by CWAG/FIGS in the memory of Suzanne Mackenzie, supports the presentation of a lecture by a woman whose involvement in geography bears a significant correspondence with Suzanne's interests and passions. The lecture takes place at the Annual Meeting of the CAG.  A sub-committee of CWAG is responsible for the selection.

To make a donation to the Suzanne Mackenzie Memorial Fund, please contact the CAG directly and mention your desire to make a donation to support the Suzanne Mackenzie Memorial Lecture:
