Precambrian Research Center
Professional Workshops
Nose to OC

In keeping with the PRC’s goal of providing advanced training to professional geologists, as well as to students, professional workshops are offered annually (usually in the fall) on various topics related to field studies of the Precambrian geology of the southern Canadian Shield.  The workshops typically offer a mix of short course lectures and field excursions and involve contributions from some of the most pre-eminent geoscientists in the field. Some workshops have limited registration, in which case preference is given to companies and individuals who are PRC members.
