Canadian Space Society

Member since: 2011
The CSS is a federally-incorporated non-profit Canadian corporation and charity.
Inspired by the old L5 Society and other space-activist groups, its principle objective is to sponsor and promote the involvement of Canadians in the development of Space. This objective will allow us to grow in cooperation, rather than in competition, with other space development organizations (such as the National Space Society and the British Interplanetary Society), while meeting a real need for an effective Canadian space-development advocacy group.
In order to help carry out our principle objective, our Constitution provides for the following additional goals:
– to provide meeting and working places to Society members for the purposes of discussion,presentation and development of space and space-related technologies;
– to provide professional development for those in the space industry or interested in entering the space industry;
– to sponsor, promote and engage in activities designed to promote increased knowledge of space and space-related technologies among Society members, and the general public;
– to pursue the manufacture, printing, publication, and distribution of space-related materials and products.
