Letter from the President
The CIC Montreal branch is an active and energetic organization that brings together Montrealers from the academic, business, media, diplomatic and political communities to discuss global events and issues related to Canada’s foreign policy. Our aim is to become the city’s bilingual hub for informative sessions on international affairs.
Montreal provides a particularly inspiring environment for the CIC. As the second largest city and media hub in Canada, Montreal is also the only city in Canada with UN offices. Montreal offers a unique blend of French and English, which gives the city a prolific connection to both the Commonwealth and La Francophonie, which is reflected in our diverse speakers program. With the second largest student population in North America after Boston, we are able to draw upon many speakers passing though Montreal.
I would like to welcome you to join the CIC-Montreal Branch where you will have ample opportunity meet our other members and our distinguished guests in intimate settings. I look forward to seeing you at some of the exciting events that we have planned for the 2011-2012 season.
President, CIC-Montreal Branch
The Montreal Branch of the Canadian International Council is very active, hosting over 10 speakers a year on a variety of topics and serving a diverse membership belonging to the academic, diplomatic and business communities of our bilingual city.
We invite you to take a look at our history, Board management, past and upcoming events as well as volunteer and internship opportunities.
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon at one of our events.
