By working closely with governments, industry, and communities, CICan ensures that all Canadians have access to quality education and training.

They lead by example, valuing diversity within their own team and governance structures. CICan also recognizes the pivotal role of education in supporting reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and unlocking the full potential of their network across Canada.
