IAPG and GC - Geoscientists Canada/Géoscientifiques Canada sign a MoU - Memorandum of Understanding

The MoU was signed on 22 September 2018.

The MoU expresses a mutual desire to cooperate on a range of themes in the field of ethics in geoscience. It helps to assure a continued IAPG-GC cooperation and coordination on issues of common interests, in particular, the following:

  • promotion of principles of ethics, research integrity, and professional ethical deontology in geoscience activities among their networks;
  • definition of ethical issues, with accompanying case-studies, where appropriate, affecting the geoscience community and organizations;
  • co-organization of scientific events to disseminate concepts of ethics in geoscience, among both the professional and research communities, with particular attention to young geoscientists;
  • production of relevant publications and communications.

Geoscientists Canada is the national organization of the 9 provincial and territorial regulatory bodies that govern Canada's professional geoscientists and geoscientists-in-training. Geoscientists Canada co-ordinates development of high national standards of admissions, competency, practice and mobility to ensure that Canada is served by a skilled, versatile, reputable and accountable geoscience profession.
