Celebrating our 96th anniversary in 2024
The CIC’s mission is to provide a platform for all Canadians to engage in global affairs. Since 1928, as a non-partisan, charitable organization, the CIC has provided a platform for citizens to help shape Canada’s place in the world. Indeed, at our 18 branches located across Canada, our volunteers host numerous in-person and online speaker events year-round for our members and the general public. We also mentor and support students through a variety of programs, and further engage with the wider public through our publications such as the International Journal, Behind the Headlines, and our online magazine Open Canada.
Ever since Canada acquired its own foreign policy, we have helped Canadians understand and shape our role in the world
