Who We Are

The Paleontology Division of the Geological Association of Canada facilitates communication among Canadian paleontologists and helps co-ordinate their activities. 

The Division sponsors the annual Canadian Paleontology Conference and paleontological symposia and special sessions at the Annual Meetings of the Geological Association of Canada, and provides Canadian representation at international activities such as the North American Paleontology Conference.

The Division also co-sponsors the monograph series Palaeontographica Canadiana, and publishes the program and abstract volumes / conference proceedings and field trip guidebooks that arise from the Canadian Paleontology Conference and other publications such as Paleo Scene.

Through our affiliated societies and links to websites of paleontolological interest, we aim to provide useful information to members of the general public who are interested in learning more about paleontology in Canada.
