Organizational Status: Independent institute, founded in 1928.

General Description: The mandate of CIIA is to promote a deeper understanding of international affairs and of Canada's role in the world by providing members with a nonpartisan, nationwide forum for informed discussion, analysis and debate. It is the only private, voluntary organization in Canada concerned with the whole range of global issues. By bringing together all interested parties-the private sector, government, academia, NGO representatives and the concerned public-to examine global issues through a distinctively Canadian lens, the institute contributes a unique perspective on Canada's place in the world. For over 70 years CIIA has helped Canadians obtain a better understanding of foreign policy and global issues through an extensive program of public education. As a nonprofit charitable organization, the institute is committed to building a foreign policy community and an international affairs constituency from coast to coast. It has established close relations with business, government, the media, universities, opinion leaders and like-minded institutions throughout Canada and the world. CIIA activities, publications and speakers programs help interested Canadians acquire the foreign policy and international affairs knowledge and understanding essential for individual, corporate and national success in the world today.
