Established in 1993 by the RCGS in partnership with National Geographic Society, the Canadian Alliance has from its inception dedicated itself to geographic literacy and geographic education. It has established programs such as the annual Great Canadian Geography Challenge and more recently worked with partners on projects related to critical thinking in geography or geographical thinking.

The Canadian Alliance is governed by a national executive comprised of geographic educators from elementary, secondary, college or university levels. The Executive includes six regional representatives who are classroom teachers elected from the Alliance membership in their region and representatives of the Canadian Association of Geographers and Faculties of Education. The six regions on the Executive are: Atlantic, Québec, Ontario, Manitoba/Saskatchewan, Alberta/Northwest Territories/Yukon and British Columbia/Nunavut.
