The 2016 Canadian Space Society (CSS) Annual Summit will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Inn at the Forks from November 14-15th, 2016.

The Summit is one of Canada’s leading conferences devoted to space science, policy, research and technology. It brings together space professionals from industry, academia, government, military and enthusiasts from all walks of life. The CSS Summit is the place to learn about the latest trends, technologies and political issues taking place in the space industry. June6_CSS_1

With technical sessions on everything from astronomy to space applications, life sciences to law and policy, the CSS Summit touches upon every facet affecting Canada’s space capabilities and potential.

The theme for this year’s summit is “At the Centre of it All”, since Winnipeg is geographically situated in the centre of Canada and has a thriving aerospace industry. Manitoba is home to Canada’s third largest aerospace industry. These companies include Magellan Aerospace (Official Summit Sponsor), GE Aerospace, and Boeing, just to name a few.

EnviroTREC is participating in the organization of this event.
