The CIC is an independent, non-partisan and charitable membership organization and think tank which provides a platform for Canadians to engage in discussions on international issues and to define our country’s place in the world. The Hamilton Branch of the Canadian International Council (CIC) is currently offering free memberships for students. By becoming a member you gain access to benefits such as networking opportunities with local and national leaders, members-only events across Canada and CIC publications. Please email us to sign up for a free membership. 

We are also looking for volunteers to join our executive board to help organize our events. This would be an excellent opportunity to gain relevant experience and skills for careers in international affairs. In particular, we are looking for students from universities and colleges in or close to Hamilton such as McMaster and Brock to join as student representatives. Please email us to inquire about positions on the board.
