The Mars Society
Our Vision and Mission
We, The Mars Society of Canada (MSC), are committed to developing a multi-planetary future for humanity through the exploration and inhabitation of Mars. Establishing a permanent human presence on Mars is not only a logical objective, it is pivotal in the future of human life and is arguably one of the most important things that our species will ever do. It will bring profound benefit to humanity, to our home world, and to the biosphere that raised us. This will ultimately inspire and guide human societies into a new era of sustainability, environmental responsibility and peaceful coexistence. As a volunteer and membership-based organization, the MSC will help build the foundations for humanity’s leap into space and support settlement activities on Mars once it arrives. To support Canada’s participation in the future establishment of communities on Mars, we are committed to the development of educational programs, research & innovation projects and analog studies for the benefit of Canada and everyone who shares our vision. We are dedicated to the values of diversity, inclusion and sustainability and will continue to conduct outreach programs in Canada through the development of local chapters, the staging of conferences and workshops and by forging active relationships with interdisciplinary organizations in academia, industry and the government. In cooperation with our local chapters and chapters of the Mars Society throughout the world, we will develop and sustain a knowledge-exchange network that is capable of engaging our general membership, the public and space professionals with the evolving challenges of building sustainable communities on Mars with the lessons learned in the terrestrial ecosphere.
We are committed to public and professional engagement through education, advocacy, research and the development of local networks.

The process of learning to live on Mars will drive an unprecedented age of technological advancement in arenas like energy generation and conservation, efficient water use, smarter farming techniques, material engineering, and much more.
It is not the abandonment of our home planet, it’s a new chapter in the growth in our species that will include new technologies and processes we can use here on Earth.
