In 2008, a group of individuals associated with Winnipeg’s business, media, academic and military constituencies came together to reestablish the Winnipeg Branch at a General Meeting of local CIC members. The Winnipeg Branch was the first Branch created under the auspices of the Canadian International Council (CIC), on 19 November 2008.
The Winnipeg Branch delivers an annual Speakers Program between September and June. Most CIC events in Winnipeg are free to the public, while CIC members enjoy exclusive access to the speakers.
The Winnipeg Branch endeavours to showcase local speakers, and occasionally invites external speakers, to engage Manitobans in discussions about issues related to Canadian foreign policy. Speakers include academics, professionals, advocates and politicians. Branch events range from individual speakers to multi-speaker panels and multi-panel conferences. To show our appreciation, we host our speakers for dinner and offer a modest donation to the charity of their choice.
The Winnipeg Branch also sponsors local conferences, including the J. W. Dafoe Political Studies Student Conference and the Peace and Conflict Studies Student Association Conference, both at the University of Manitoba.
