As part of Natural Resources Canada's (NRCan) Lands and Minerals Sector (LMS), the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has been providing public geoscience knowledge to Canadians since
1842. NRCan is a science-based organization and works to improve the quality of life of Canadians by ensuring that our natural resources are developed sustainably through evidence-informed policy; and by providing a source of jobs, prosperity and
opportunity while preserving the environment and respecting communities and Indigenous peoples.
NRCan is delivering results for Canadians across three core responsibilities mandated to the Department: 1) Natural Resource Science and Risk
Mitigation; 2) Innovative and Sustainable Natural Resource Development; and 3) Globally Competitive Natural Resource Sectors. All GSC Science and Technology (S&T) falls under NRCan Core Responsibility 1. The GSC reports its S&T contributions to NRCan
Core Responsibility 1 through a nested corporate reporting structure (NRCan Departmental Results Framework, LMS Performance Information Profiles, and GSC S&T Programs).
The mission of the GSC is to provide authoritative and innovative geoscience
information reflected through the following corporate priorities: Geological knowledge for Canada's Onshore and Offshore Land; Geoscience for Sustainable Development; and Geoscience for Keeping Canada Safe.
The GSC develops its science through 13
science programs/services: 1. Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program; 2. United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) Program; 3. Environmental Assessment Service; 4. Environmental Geoscience Program; 5. Groundwater Geoscience
Program; 6. Targeted Geoscience Initiative Program; 7. Geoscience for New Energy Supply Program; 8. Marine Conservation Targets Program; 9. Marine Geoscience for Marine Spatial Planning Program; 10. Climate Change Geoscience Program; 11. Public
Safety Geoscience Program; 12. Open Geoscience; and 13. Science Laboratory Network.
In 2018-2019, the GSC: had budget expenditures that totaled $65.8M; employed 401 full-time employees; and published 764 publications.
This Report on Results and
Delivery provides an overview of the GSC, its corporate results and delivery structure, and 2018-19 S&T program highlights.
