The Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT) is a national, not-for-profit, professional association that unites chemical technology students and professionals who work in industry, academia and government.
The CSCT is one of the three Constituent Societies of the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), along with the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC) and the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE). We are governed and funded by our membership.
As well as enjoying benefits such as discounted rates for our conferences and a complimentary subscription to our magazine, members of the CSCT become part of Canada’s diverse and prestigious community of chemical scientists, engineers and technologists.
ACCN, the Canadian Chemical News is the association magazine of the CSCT. This on-line publication showcases the important work of chemical technologists across Canada.
The Local Sections, Subject Divisions, Student Chapters and Forums of the CSCT bring together individuals with a shared interest in chemical technology.
The CSCT provides customized resources to help students and professionals in chemical technology advance their careers.
The CSCT confers the Norman and Marion Bright Memorial Award to recognize individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to chemical technology.
The CSCT is represented on the Technology Accreditation Canada, which accredits technology and technician programs.
The CSCT’s outreach program fosters an interest in chemical technology among young people and raises the public’s understanding of and appreciation for the work of chemical technologists.
