Welcome to the Ontario Chapter of the GIA Alumni in Canada! We offer regularly scheduled activities for our members and guests in a friendly environment where everyone can network with industry peers, and have fun learning.

 

With diverse expertise and experience, our chapter offers gemologists, appraisers, collectors, retailers, designers, manufacturers and students the resources to expand their knowledge. Our events are supported by members and the industry at large to offer topics that are relevant in today's industry.

 

Please join us at one of our many informal meetings; where we welcome anyone that is interested in gemology, or looking to network in the industry.

We are a non-profit educational organization.
