Chant Medal

The Chant Medal of the Society was established in 1940 in appreciation of the great work of the late Prof. C. A. Chant in furthering the interests of astronomy in Canada. This medal is awarded, not more than once a year, to an amateur astronomer resident in Canada on the basis of the value of the work carried out in astronomy and closely allied fields of the original investigation and specifically not for the services of the Society, worthy though these may be.

The nomination of a member of a Centre should be submitted to National Office through the council of the Centre. Nominations for this medal should reach National Office by December 31st.
