Compass Rose Club member Heidi Wyle and RCGS Fellow Wade Davis

Since its first depiction in the late 14th century, the Compass Rose has been inextricably linked to the spirit of ingenuity and adventure that characterizes great exploration. As a symbol deeply connected to the winds, land and seas, a traveler could always count on the Compass Rose to show them the direction in which they were headed.

In keeping with this tradition, the Compass Rose Club has been created to provide enhanced support for the Society, so that it may continue to guide Canadians towards a better understanding of their country, and their place in the world. 

Composed of a diverse group of professionals, leaders, and innovators, the Compass Rose Club provides a unique opportunity for involvement by donors who share a commitment to fostering a love and understanding of our country’s rich geographic heritage, and want to take a more active role in supporting the work of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
