The Precambrian Division of the GAC aims to promote cutting edge research being done in Canada on all aspects of Precambrian geology. The Division sponsors field trips, field conferences and special sessions at annual meetings leading to a variety of publications. Encouraging student interest in Precambrian geology is a priority for Division. During each annual GAC-MAC meeting, the Division provides funding to help students attend field trips related to Precambrian geology and present their research. In even-numbered years the Precambrian Division selects the Howard Street Robinson Fund lecturer, who tours geoscience departments across Canada lecturing on current research in Precambrian geology.
