Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is the national and international voice of Canada’s publicly supported colleges, institutes and polytechnics. Colleges and institutes work with industry and social sectors to train 1.5 million learners of all ages and backgrounds at campuses serving over 3,000 urban, rural and remote communities in Canada.

The CICan 2016 Conference “Inspiration” will be hosted by Cégep Garneau, Cégep Limoilou, Cégep de Sainte-Foy, and Champlain Regional College, in Quebec City, QC from May 29-31, 2016.

A priority for Canada’s colleges and institutes is collaborating with business, industry, sector councils and national organizations to overcome mutual challenges and build on successes. On Tuesday morning, May 31 join in the conversation with more than 700 college and institute CEOs, senior administrators, board members, managers, faculty and students, from Canada and around the world.

The morning will kick off with a breakfast at 7:30 a.m. as Manjit Minhas, an entrepreneur and judge on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, shares business lessons with equal parts force and finesse. Minhas runs a $155 million brewery-the 10th largest worldwide-that she helped build from scratch. Her unprecedented success demolished stereotypes, surprised her competitors, and cleared a path for entrepreneurs of every age and gender.

Following, Madame Lise Watier, an entrepreneurial pioneer and former television personality, will take the floor. Mme. Watier launcher Lise Watier Cosmétiques and in 1993 introduced NEIGES, the most successful fragrance ever in Canada, still the best selling perfume in Quebec and one of the top sellers in Canada (Les Affaires). In 2009, she created the Lise Watier Foundation with the mission of empowering women and girls in need. Her company donated all revenue from sales of ROSE TENDRESSE lipstick in its PLUMPISSIMO and GLOSS LUMIÈRE D’ESPOIR lipstick lines to the foundation and since April 2010, has generated more than $1,000,000 for the foundation.
