Conference Information

Welcome (bienvenue) to the 31st annual meeting of the Atlantic Division of the CAG, hosted by the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Saint Mary's University.

Because of continued concerns surrounding travel, we have elected to host this meeting in a virtual format. There are some clear advantages to hosting a virtual meeting, including reducing CO2 emissions and eliminating travel costs. The conference will take place using the Zoom platform on Friday October 28th and Saturday October 29th, 2022.

This meeting is free for everyone to attend. Register by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.

Registration deadline:
October 17th

This year we are offering a new "lightning" (5-minute) format for presenting emerging and proposed research.

Awards for best student presentations will be given in several categories.
