About the Canadian Space Society
Since 1983, the Canadian Space Society (CSS) has been a national, non-profit organization made up of professionals and enthusiasts pursuing the human exploration and development of the Solar System and beyond.
Its principal objective is to stimulate the Canadian space industry through its technical and outreach projects and promote the involvement of Canadians in the development of space.
With many of Canada’s top space professionals on board, the CSS is made up of people of all backgrounds and interests, including teachers, environmentalists, writers, and marketers. Our principal objective is to sponsor and promote the involvement of Canadians in the development of space.
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.
