Academic relations between Canada and India are at an all time high and yet education linkages remain well below potential. CIEC was founded by bringing together 15 academic & non-academic organizations in Canada and has since gradually evolved into a valuable bridge between Canada & India. It is now positioned as the “go to” organization for Canada-India academic relations. CIEC is one of only a few organizations offering critical ‘on the ground’ presence in both countries and helps Institutions position themselves advantageously in an increasingly competitive environment. CIEC combines corporate governance with the benefits of a public-private partnership balanced with an entrepreneurial methodology to remain independent and yet be financially sustainable.
CIEC has invested countless hours and resources in paving the way for academics, organizations, governments and other stakeholders to work with each other and has helped lay the foundation for smooth academic relationships and exchanges. We are proud of our accomplishments in this short span but also realize that we have only just begun to scratch the surface. Besides planning delegations, organizing missions (recruiting & otherwise), training seminars, facilitating academic exchanges and hosting our flagship annual ‘Synergy’ Conference for several years, there remains much more to do and many more opportunities to be seized.
As CIEC opens its Membership to Institutions across India and Canada, we invite Colleges, Universities and interested Corporations to join us as we enhance ties and create opportunities for academic institutions and learners from both countries. Members will have an opportunity to network with each other and showcase themselves and their institutions in this vibrant and burgeoning education corridor.
CIEC Membership will also serve as a unique way to profile your Institutions programs, commitments and initiatives in this vibrant ‘corridor’ and with thought provoking discussions led by experts from both countries featured in our monthly newsletter and live news portal ‘Disha‘ which is read by over 19,000 academics and thought leaders from both countries. Members can highlight recent developments, new programs, dialogue on emerging opportunities, stimulate thought and discuss new initiatives and ideas. CIEC’s highly penetrative and potent network reaches academic champions from both countries, high level government representatives and policy makers, besides Colleges & Universities.
CIEC is a non-profit, bi-national, bi-partisan, independent, event-driven, membership-based organization established to operate exclusively in the ‘Canada India education corridor’, enhance ties and create opportunities for academic institutions and learners from both countries.
