The following links to related technical organizations and societies are provided as a courtesy to the Calgary Geotechnical Society members.
Canadian Geotechnical Society
The Canadian Geotechnical Society provides professional development opportunities to members across Canada and in other countries. Members work in industry, in government, in construction and in universities. They can be engineers or geoscientists – the Society is associated with the Engineering Institute of Canada and the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences.
Geotechnical Society of Edmonton
The Geotechnical Society of Edmonton, Alberta, was registered as an independent Society on February 5, 1969. It is one of the oldest geotechnical groups in Canada. Read more about the society at their official website.
Vancouver Geotechnical Society
The Vancouver Geotechnical Society is a local section of the Canadian Geotechnical Society providing opportunities for continuing professional development for geotechnical engineers/engineering geologists in the Vancouver area.
Canadian Society for Civil Engineering
The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) is a learned society intended to develop and maintain high standards of civil engineering practice in Canada and to enhance the public image of the civil engineering profession.
Tunnelling Association of Canada
The Tunnelling Association of Canada (TAC) has the objective of promoting and advancing Canadian tunnelling and underground excavation technologies, as well as safe design, construction, and maintenance. As well, TAC facilitates the exchange of information on related activities and technical developments.
Canadian Dam Association
The Canadian Dam Safety Association (CDSA) was founded in 1989 to advance the implementation of practice to ensure the safe operation of dams in Canada. In 1997, the CDSA amalgamated with the Canadian National Committee of Large Dams (CANCOLD) to form the Canadian Dam Association (CDA). The association provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences in the fields of dam safety, public safety, and protection of the environment.
Geological Survey of Canada
The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) is part of the Earth Sciences Sector of Natural Resources Canada. The GSC is Canada’s oldest scientific agency and one of its first government organizations. It was founded in 1842 to help develop a viable Canadian mineral industry by establishing the general geological base on which the industry could plan detailed investigations. Throughout its long and colourful history, the GSC has played a leading role in exploring the nation.
Canadian Geotechnical Journal
The Canadian Geotechnical Journal has been published since 1963, and is a monthly technical journal that features articles, notes, and discussions related to new developments in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, and applied sciences.
