The SCO-SOC is an organization of Canada's ornithological community.

We administer awards, produce two publications, and provide interconnection with other professional ornithological societies.

We produce a tri-annual newsletter: Picoides.

Our professional journal is Avian Conservation and Ecology.  The journal is peer-reviewed, electronic, and entirely open-access.  It is published jointly with Bird Studies Canada. Avian Conservation and Ecology welcomes any submission related to the conservation and ecology of birds in Canada and worldwide.
