About the Canadian Space Society

Founded in 1983, the Canadian Space Society (CSS) has been a federally-incorporated non-profit organization and charity. With many of Canada’s top space professionals on board, the CSS is made up of enthusiasts of all backgrounds pursuing the exploration and development of the Solar System and beyond.

Inspired by the old L5 Society and other space-activist groups, its principal objective is to sponsor and promote the involvement of Canadians in the space sector, through its technical and outreach projects including regular chapter meetings, the annual Canadian Space Summit and more.

The CSS wishes 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 advocacy group.
