Between 1945 and 1980, the Royal Society of Canada’s Celebration of Excellence and Engagement (COEE), formerly known as the Annual General Meeting (AGM), was hosted at least once in every province of Canada, at 25 universities from coast to coast. In 2013, the RSC resumed the practice of moving the AGM around the country, beginning with a visit to Banff, Alberta. This year, in partnership with Dalhousie, our event will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, November 15-18.
