There are many people involved in OSGeo who are from Canada. This page is to try to gather interest in establishing a nation-wide OSGeo chapter. The Ottawa Chapter has focused on the nation's capital, and other cities are sure to have particular smaller groups of interest as well.
- Support development of local OSGEO chapters
- Support National Geomatics events to promote FOSS4G and OSGEO
- Organize National Geomatics events to promote FOSS4G and OSGEO
- Participate in National Geomatics events to promote FOSS4G and OSGEO
- Starting a local Chapter
- Local Chapter Guidelines
- Proposed Membership Rules
- Interest Groups
- Like Minded Regional Organizations
- One Organizational Model
- International Outreach
A good goal would be for full representation across the country. Please change the list as we add missing representation. Either a group or single individual can be considered a representation. Next to the abbreviation we can list regional chapters that are also represented in this group. A regional chapter is not required for representation but can help network people to local activities.
