About CIAC


APF Canada and Universities Canada partnered to create the inaugural Canada-in-Asia Conference in 2023 (CIAC2023) to catalyze a new and transformative phase of Canada-Asia engagement. CIAC2023, held in Singapore over three days in February 2023, brought together more than 530 Canada-connected individuals, businesses, and institutions. More than 370 participants were alumni of Canadian universities, with many based in Asia.

The success of CIAC2023 in gathering people and ideas from across Canada and Asia to work on some of today’s most pressing global challenges – feeding the world, fighting climate change, and building more inclusive societies, among others – and the enthusiasm for sustained momentum in connecting Canada and Asia has led to a commitment by APF Canada and Universities Canada to convene a major multi-sector Canada-in-Asia Conference every second year, and more targeted, thematic CIACs in intervening years.
