The CIC-Edmonton Branch is one of the Canadian International Council’s 15 volunteer-run Branches, which, together, hold over 100 events nationally on a wide variety of topics that can range in format from casual Politics at the Pub discussions to expert panels and formal conferences. Under the CIC’s Branch Policy, each branch has two main objectives:

(a) to promote a broader and deeper understanding of international affairs and Canada’s role in a changing world by providing interested Canadians with a non-partisan nation-wide forum for informed discussion, analysis and debate;
(b) to promote the study of international affairs in the broadest sense, with emphasis on the roles and interests of Canada.

Since re-founding in 2009, the CIC-Edmonton Branch has hosted or co-hosted more than two dozen events. Notable guests include a former Deputy Prime Minister, Alberta’s Deputy Minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations, private sector energy experts, as well as an Ambassador and several foreign diplomats. Events have ranged in format from pub nights, panel presentations, roundtable discussions, exhibits, and speed networking sessions.

Mission & Mandate of the Branch
With the CIC’s objectives in mind, the mission of the Edmonton Branch is to be a leading organization that promotes awareness of Canada’s foreign relations in Edmonton by fostering and supporting a diverse, knowledgeable and engaged international affairs community. The mandate of the branch is to provide an independent and non-partisan forum for open and thought-provoking dialogue for our local membership, academia, the business community and the general public.
