The CFG will be participating in the GeoSaskatoon Conference in a number of ways. The CFG AGM will be held during the conference and is open to anyone interested. The time and location will be updated as soon as possible.

The Canadian Foundation for Geotechnique is seeking nominations for the graduate scholarships administered by the Foundation. The Bozozuk and Becker awards provide $5000 in funding to graduate students who have demonstrated excellence in their research work.

At the GeoVirtual conference, the Legget Medal was bestowed on Dr. Wayne Clifton, President of Clifton and Associates. Although the conference was not held in person, the awards ceremony was broadcast to honour those receiving awards recognizing excellence.

The Canadian Foundation for Geotechnique notes the passing of Michael Bozozuk who was instrumental in the development of the Canadian Foundation for Geotechnique (CFG) and its predecessor Geo-Contributions and its mandate to fund and support its activities.

In recognition of Dr. Becker’s contributions to the geotechnical community, a prize for a Masters level student has been set up.  The prize has a value of $ 5,000 and was awarded in 2019.

In Edmonton, during the last week of September, a total of $ 14,300 worth of prizes were awarded and the R.F.Legget award was presented to Michel Aubertin at the annual Canadian Geotechnical Society conference. The awards are funded by the Foundation.
