Canadian Quaternary Association and Canadian Geomorphology Research Group Biennial Meeting 2024

Join us for the CANQUA-CGRG Biennial Meeting

at the University of Regina, August 18-21, 2024!

It has been almost six years since we last met as a group, and with that in mind we are striving for an exciting conference with several keynote presentations and a diversity of topics that matches our membership. We have themed sessions in areas of glacial geology, geomorphology, paleoecology, paleoclimatology, paleohydrology, soils, geoarchaeology, dating methods, natural hazards, and paleontology -- all capturing our common interest in understanding the past 2.6 million years.

We would like to acknowledge that the University of Regina and its federated colleges are situated on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories — the homelands of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda peoples, and Michif/Métis nation.

We hope to see you in Regina!
