Canadian Geographic is the bimonthly magazine of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS). It was first published in May 1930 under the name Canadian Geographical Journal. The society's objective was to produce a popular magazine dealing primarily with Canadian geography. The first editor was Charles Camsell, since 1915 a fellow of the British Royal Geographical Society, a geologist who had been responsible for mapping large parts of Northern Ontario, Manitoba and the Yukon.

Typically the magazine contains articles on physical, historical, political and environmental geography, illustrated with photographs and maps. It has recent published articles on subjects of modern controversy, such as acid rain, clear-cut logging, vanishing wetlands, pollution of the Great Lakes and energy sources of Canadians.

The magazine's website contains substantial extracts from current articles and supplementary information not published in the print edition.

In 2002, the magazine established the Canadian Environment Awards program in partnership with the government and private companies.
