RCGS News & Events

Celebrate the RCGS’ 90th anniversary in style!

The Royal Canadian Geographical Society has been celebrating Canada since 1929 — and now you can celebrate the Society’s 90th anniversary in style.

Over nine decades, Canada’s foremost explorers have been elected RCGS Fellows, many of whom have literally put aspects of Canada’s geography on the map. From the great navigators captain Joseph-Elzéar Bernier and RCMP Henry Larsen to polar legend Vilhjalmur Stefansson and astronaut Roberta Bondar, these individuals have defined Canada’s history.

To celebrate its 90th and to support its programs, the RCGS has partnered with Roots Canada to create — for the first time — expedition patches for some of these nation-building expeditions. (Bondar’s flight patch for her mission aboard the space shuttle Discovery was recreated here with her permission and that of the Canadian Space Agency.)

The other patches, capturing the essence of history-making expeditions, were designed for the RCGS by leading Canadian design firm Strut Creative. The seven patches are being used for the first time on the limited-edition RCGS x Roots expedition jacket. Only 90 numbered jackets are being produced.
