Mission and Strategic Objectives

GeoAlliance Canada provides a neutral platform for our members to work together to increase public awareness of the value of the geospatial information supply chain.

Organizations across the country have historically worked independently to promote geospatial literacy and the value of geospatial tools, data, and technology to a variety of audiences, from school children to senior decision makers.

We believe that by coming together under one umbrella to pool our energy and resources, our individual voices will be louder and have greater impact.

We provide a structured framework and project support for the work undertaken by our members. Joining GeoAlliance Canada will allow your organization to take a prominent leadership role within the community. Our project-based framework creates opportunities for increased access to funding to drive forward projects of national importance. Our member network includes leaders from all points along the geospatial supply chain, breaking down our existing silos. Membership gives you access to formal and informal networking opportunities with a diverse group of community leaders.
