L’un des éléments essentiels du plan stratégique de la Société royale du Canada (SRC) est « d’amplifier la portée de l’assemblée générale annuelle et du colloque annuel de la SRC ». De 1945 à 1980, la SRC a tenu son assemblée générale annuelle au moins une fois dans chaque province du Canada et dans 25 universités d’un océan à l’autre.
