For nearly 50 years, geomatics representatives from Canadian provinces and territories have collaborated together and with the federal government on geomatics initiatives. This presentation will explore why such a council came to be and why its work matters to the Canadian geomatics sector and citizens alike. While the geomatics sector and the world we live in continue to change, the need for coordination across jurisdictions remains crucial to support decision-making and response to shared challenges. This presentation will also provide some insight on the work currently underway by the Council and its working groups.
