The Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA)

The CCA is a non-profit association created to promote the disciplines and professions of cartography and Geographic Information Science in Canada. Our broad membership represents academia, all levels of Government and private industry, and includes fellow cartographers from coast to coast, and Internationally.

Map of Canada

The CCA plays a leading role in the world of cartography through involvement with the International Cartographic Association (ICA). The Canadian National Committee (CNC) , chaired by a CCA nominee, is responsible for coordinating Canadian participation in the ICA, and has such specific responsibilities as appointing representatives to commissions and committees, preparing a biannual cartography exhibit, publishing a biannual national report on Canadian cartography, and facilitating the submission of technical papers for presentations at ICA events.

We host annual meetings, provide networking opportunities, create a variety of publications to promote geography awareness and map making, and help improve the use of cartographic materials through education.

If you are a cartographer, or are passionate about mapping, geography, and data visualization then we encourage you to join the Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA).

The mission of the Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) is to promote the disciplines and professions of cartography and Geographic Information Science.
