The Canadian Society for Mesoamerican Studies


was founded in 1992 as a not-for profit corporation with charitable status.  It operates on an entirely voluntary basis and depends on donations (membership dues) for operating funds.

The Society's objectives are: 

1. to assist Canadian mesoamericanists in the countries of Central America;

2. to provide a means of communication between mesoamericanists, primarily across Canada, but also among all scholars in this field; and


  3. to present the general public with up-to-date and reliable information on the cultures of mesoamerica.

The Society is able to act as an intermediary body to facilitate intergovernmental negotiations and can assist in establishing relationships between Canadian and Central American Mesoamericanists and/or institutions.
