Canada's Hub for International Affairs

Thunder Bay



The Thunder Bay branch of the CIC is the former Branch of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs, founded in 1981. The original branch was formed by a cross-section members from the community, the nucleus of which was local high-school history teachers and members of the Department of History at Lakehead University.

Today, the Thunder Bay Branch continues to have a strong relationship with Lakehead University, with half of our speakers each year and co-sponsorship coming from various faculties and departments of that institution. Located at the geographic centre of Canada and a short distance from the Mid-Western United States, the branch also benefits from speakers from across Canada and from the United States.
