Through the CAG journal, The Canadian Geographer (TCG) / Le Géographe canadien (LGC) the CAG is committed to the dissemination of geographic research. The aim of journal is to publish cutting edge geographical research with strong contemporary resonance that challenge the status quo, promote social justice and address significant social, scientific and technical issues in Canada and globally.

At these meetings, research is presented on the discipline of geography and panel discussions, workshops, and field trips are part of a week where ideas are exchanged and CAG business transacted.
