The Ottawa Centre is comprised of about 90 CMOS members. The Centre holds monthly meetings downtown from September through May. Our meetings are open to members and the public. Meetings start with lunch followed by a presentation by an invited speaker and discussion. Occasionally our meetings are joint with partner groups or societies.

In 2020, the Ottawa Centre will host the annual CMOS Congress. Our local arrangements chair is putting together volunteer groups to help with this large project. If you can help in any way please contact Bruce Angle.
Outreach activities aimed at high school, university and post graduate students are a priority for the Ottawa Centre. We judge and provide prizes at regional science fairs in Ottawa and Gatineau.

In addition he has been active in presenting information on the two alignments to associations, business, buildings to name a few.
