GoGeomatics Canada strives to build a thriving geospatial community by giving members networking opportunities. That’s why we hold informal monthly networking events at pubs across Canada. Currently we have groups meeting in Ottawa, Toronto, Niagara, Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Nelson.

These Socials are free, and open to everyone – business owners, professionals, students, and job seekers from all areas of geomatics. The groups discuss jobs, technology, careers, and anything else related to GIS, remote sensing, surveying, and geomatics. To get on the email reminder list for the group in your area, please use the contact form to send us an email.

Start your own GoGeomatics Canada Group

No group in your city or region? Starting your own group is easy. Send us an email and tell us you’d like to have a group!

Pick a night and time that works best for you, and find an appropriate venue. You can advertise your event for free on GoGeomatics Canada and you will get a group together. We guarantee it. There are so many of the community using the board and looking to network that it’s easy.

Sponsor a Social

Sponsors provide free food for the group, like wings and nachos. Because of that, sponsored socials tend to be very popular! Contact GoGeomatics Canada to inquire about title sponsorship. You’ll get the opportunity to introduce your organization, hand out promotional materials, and appear in all GoGeomatics’ online promotions. It’s an opportunity to reach and connect with the community. If you’re interested in learning more about sponsoring a social, download our Sponsorship Brochure.
