The Canada Chapter of The American Ceramic Society serves ACerS members throughout Canada for the purpose of promoting the arts and sciences connected with ceramics and glass science and engineering. Events such as workshops, industrial showcases, and seminars are planned to enhance and facilitate the interaction, technical discussions, and potential collaborations between ACerS members in Canada.  These will focus on the development of early career researchers  to present their work to our members, provide publicity for job opportunities, and the establishment of networking collaborations.

The Canada Chapter of ACerS  was pleased to host the Distinguished Young Professionals Forum speakers who participated in the 2nd Global Forum on Advanced Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Development conference in Toronto, Canada.  The networking happy hour took place on Monday, July 22, 2019.

The event offered a great opportunity for Young Professionals to meet experts from different ceramic backgrounds, as well as members of the Canada Chapter.


The Canada Chapter’s inaugural event took place on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at the Centre INRS-EMT à Bonaventure in Montreal, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

We had two wonderful speakers, Marta Cerutti, Associate Professor in Materials Engineering at McGill University, and Clara Santato, Full Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics at Polytechnique Montréal, both of whom covered a broad range of grand challenges in ceramics research.  A full house of over 45 attendees represented an exciting and broad cross section of ceramics interests and backgrounds, which facilitated engaging discussions and networking. Participants also enjoyed a buffet dinner.
