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).

2020 Annual General Meeting & Conference

University of Victoria

The 2020 CCA Annual Meeting will be held at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, from May 25 to 28th, 2020, in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) and the Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives (ACMLA).

The theme will be “Resilience on a Dynamic Planet.”

Note: You will notice on the 2020 Abstract Submission page that there are study groups listed to help with sorting of individual presentations into sessions. CCA presenters should tick the button for the study group: Geographic Information Science Study Group (GIS-SIG) / Groupe d’étude sur la science de l’information géographique, this will help combine GIS, Cartography and ACMLA sessions together.
