National Points of Contact Canada

Welcome to the Canadian site for the Space Generation Advisory Council! The Canadian space sector holds many opportunities for students and young professionals. SGAC strives to bring these opportunities to our members and to create new ways for young people to advance Canada’s role in the international space community. To do this, we share news of scholarships, conferences, internships and other opportunities with our network of members across the country. We help university students and young professionals link up with others in the domestic space community. We also provide a unique link to the international space community. SGAC is here to help you build your international space network, offer you leadership opportunities, and give you a voice: at the United Nations, at space agencies, at academic institutions, and in industry. We hope you join us!
