About APGO Education

The mission of the APGO Education Foundation is to provide financial and other support to promote a greater understanding of geoscience to the public, support the individuals who study geoscience and support the practice of professional geoscience.

The APGO Education Foundation (the Foundation) recognizes the need for qualified professional geoscientists who safeguard the public, investors, life, health, property, and the natural environment. The Foundation works symbiotically with Professional Geoscientists Ontario (PGO), the regulating body for geoscientists in Ontario (www.pgo.ca), to support post-secondary geoscience students and internationally-trained geoscientists seeking professional registration in Ontario, and to enhance the knowledge of the general public concerning geoscience and the role of professional geoscientists.
