EN ViRTUAL Seminar

The Environmental Division (EN) of Chemical Institute Canada brings together members in the field of environmental sciences and engineering. Together with the Environmental Chemistry program in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto, we are pleased to introduce a new series of virtual talks covering a wide range of topics in environmental chemistry, including in the atmospheric, terrestrial, freshwater, marine and Arctic environments.

We are particularly thrilled to showcase new and exciting work by early career researchers in the division. Whether you want to learn about the latest developments in environmental science and engineering, or stay connected with the broader community in these fields, join us in this series.

We look forward to “seeing” you!
