About the Canadian Space Society
The Canadian Space Society is a national, non-profit organization that started over 25 years ago to bring together Canada's best and brightest in the space industry to pursue research ideas and projects and to move the industry forward in various underdeveloped yet cutting edge fields. Its principal objective is to stimulate the Canadian space industry through its technical and outreach projects and promote the involvement of Canadians in the development of space. Over the years, the CSS has spawned many projects and several companies have originated from within the ranks of the CSS. Today, the CSS is composed of both space professionals and space enthusiasts, from both government and private industry, who are working on many of Canada's high profile space missions.
