Who We Are

The Voice of Business in the Canadian Seismic Industry

The Canadian Association of Geophysical Contractors (CAGC) is a trade association representing the business of seismic in the Canadian Oil and Gas Industry. Working pro-actively, the CAGC develops and maintains a business environment in which Geophysical and Support Industries can earn a fair rate of return on invested capital and provide new employment opportunities for Canadians.

Our members are part of the $120-billion-a year oil and natural gas industry that affects the lives of every Canadian. Petroleum and the products made from it play a vital role in our daily lives. In addition to providing heating and transportation fuels, oil and natural gas are the main building blocks for an endless list of products - from clothing and carpets, to medicines, glues and paints.

Working closely with our members, governments, communities and stakeholders, CAGC develops and administers programs and training to ensure worker health and safety, while advocating the highest of ethical standards in the conduct of all business throughout the geophysical industry.

By endeavoring to self-regulate our business activities, where feasible, our aim is to minimize the public expense of governing our industry. We also strive to achieve consensus on industry codes of practice and operating guidelines that meet or exceed government standards.

With active participation from our members, the CAGC continues to promote the Canadian geophysical industry as a world leader in development and application of advanced exploration technologies and take pride in promoting protection of the natural environment in all aspects of geophysical operations.
