The Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) is Canada's foremost professional organization for chemical scientists, engineers and technologists.
Chemists, chemical engineers and chemical technologists are society’s problem solvers. From advances in healthcare and pharmaceuticals, to energy, food and water, they find solutions for our future.
Through its three Constituent Societies — the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) and the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT) — the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) is committed to advancing the chemical sciences and engineering.
CIC serves the members of its Constituent Societies and achieves its mission by:
In addition to the benefits of networking and being part of advancing the objectives of the CIC, members receive discounted rates for our conferences and a complimentary subscription to our magazine. (more...)
There are several classes of Membership of the CIC.

CIC Fellowship is a senior class of membership that recognizes the merits of members of the Constituent Societies of the CIC who have made outstanding contributions to the chemical sciences and engineering. Fellows of the Constituent Societies of the CIC are given the designation FCIC. (more...)
Anyone associated with the practice of, or with an interest in chemistry, can benefit from membership, including:
The Local Sections of the CIC bring together individuals who live, work or study in the same region and who share an interest in the chemical sciences and engineering, in order to encourage productive sharing of ideas. Local Sections provide opportunities for members to get involved locally by attending lectures, touring industrial plant facilities, providing mentorship and taking part in social and networking events.
Members are automatically assigned to a Local Section of chemical scientists and engineers in their geographic area. (In some regions where there is a high concentration of chemical engineers, there is a CSChE Local Section as well as a CIC Local Section.) Simply fill out your application for membership in one of the Constituent Societies of the CIC and you will be assigned a Local Section based on your home address. You will be informed of the events, activities and news of your Local Section via e-mail.
The Vancouver section consists of BC and the Yukon, excluding the areas served by Vancouver Island and Southeastern BC Local Sections (Details). Please contact us if you are interested in serving on the Local Vancouver Section Executive. The date and time of our next meeting is to be announced. Members of the Executive will be contacted by e-mail.
