CIC Vancouver is one of the five original branches in Canada founded in 1928. It is Greater Vancouver’s leading hub for informative sessions on global issues. An integral part of the national resource and trading hub of Canada, CIC Vancouver provides a forum and focal point for those interested in international affairs and British Columbia’s role in the world. By providing a non-partisan analysis of international issues, we not only integrate business leaders in the Vancouver area with the best researchers and public policy leaders but connect young professionals and graduate students at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University through our dynamic and informal events with speakers relevant to internationalists. This past year we have worked hard to increase our partnership with student groups by partnering with UBC’s community learning program. We provide a unique networking opportunity for those who are in Vancouver but who have their eyes on issues overseas.
