A key element of the Royal Society of Canada's (RSC) Strategic Plan is to “expand the reach of the RSC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Annual Symposium”. Between 1945 and 1980, the AGM of the RSC 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.
