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 is headquartered in Varennes, Quebec.
