Join us for the CCIC 2018 Annual Conference!
September 19 and 20, 2018
We invite you to come and take part in our dynamic and provocative CCIC 2018 Annual Conference. Take a look at our Concept Note that tells the story behind our chosen conference title “Is Canada Back?”
After winning the Canadian federal election in 2015, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proclaimed that ‘Canada is back’ – a message to citizens and the international community alike that Canada has regained its “compassionate and constructive voice”.
- Are We Feminists? Facilitated by Ketty Nivyabandi, this panel – featuring feminist leaders Muzna Dureid, Katja Iversen, Michelle Odette, and Theo Sowa – asks if today’s government-endorsed feminism is truly transformative, or just a catch-all buzzword.
- In The Political Pulse, political strategists from each political affiliation will debate Canada’s role in the world, challenge the sector’s advocacy tactics and make the case for development leading up to Election 2019.
- In Funding the Future, financial experts Raj Kumar, Paul Lamontagne, and Joan Larrea examine creative and effective ways to end extreme global poverty by 2030.
- In Youth Breaking Barriers, Aya Chebbi, Dillon Black, and Dominique Souris will highlight youth-led movements and the challenges faced when working within traditional and established civil society frameworks.
