Think of it as a graduation of sorts — one that was nearly two decades in the making. After 19 years, the Canadian Council for Geographic Education has changed its name to Canadian Geographic Education.

The new name aligns Canadian Geographic Education with the magazine and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society to strengthen its presence in the geographic world.

“It’s a natural evolution,” says Connie Wyatt Anderson, the chair of Canadian Geographic Education. “We are bettering ourselves and growing while retaining our dedication and commitment to geographic literacy.”

As part of the rebranding process, a new website will be created within the next year. For now, however, Canadian Geographic Education’s executive members continue to work hard toward fulfilling their new mission statement: “fostering geographic engagement.”
