Event status:

Due to the ongoing risk posed by COVID-19, the 54th Congress of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) has been cancelled. More information is available via the CMOS website.

The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society are hosting their 2020 CMOS Congress in Ottawa, Ontario.

The Congress has the unique opportunity to highlight to policy-makers the national observations, research and services that contribute substantively to reducing the risk to society of extreme weather, climate and environmental events, and to outline the challenges facing us in managing our future Earth environment and societal resilience.

In addition, the Congress can foster cross-disciplinary dialogue amongst research and managerial professionals in meteorology, oceanography, hydrology, Earth sciences, environment and social science on challenges facing us nationally and globally. What measures can be taken to ensure that we have the necessary national and global infrastructure and expertise in place to maintain societal resilience?

Special sessions will be held not only on the use of weather, climate and environmental prediction for risk reduction but also on: (i) protecting Canada’s vast Arctic and sub-Arctic as weather, climate and the environment change, and (ii) strengthening co-operation to reduce risks to agriculture and other sectors posed by changing weather and climate.

The themes under which scientific and technical sessions will be organised are, in no order of priority: 

  • Risks and impacts of climate change on the resilience of major sectors
  • Tornadoes and other extreme weather events impacting Canadians
  • Oceans and ice in a changing climate
  • Floods and water crises in Canada and globally
  • Impacts of A changing climate in the Arctic
  • Climate-weather-water and food
  • Pollution of the air, water and ecosystems
  • The cryosphere – impacts locally to globally
