Another successful Conference in WinnipegThe CICan 2015 annual conference wrapped up last week in Winnipeg. It was another successful event for the association, with over 700 participants from across the country. International delegates from 31 different countries were also in attendance including speakers from many of CICan’s international partners from around the globe. It was also the perfect opportunity to hear speakers from colleges and institutes speak about their many groundbreaking initiatives. Dozens of panels were organized during the three-day event which were divided between six streams: teaching, learning and student success; applied research; leadership and governance; friend raising/fundraising; environmental sustainability and indigenous education. Five pre-conference events were also held to foster further exchanges between colleges and institutes. The conference was hosted by Assiniboine College, École technique et professionnelle de l’Université de Saint-Boniface, Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology and Red River College who truly showed our delegates the best that Manitoba has to offer. Next year’s conference will take place in Québec City and be hosted by Cegep Limoilou, Cegep Garneau, Cegep de Sainte-Foy and Champlain Regional College.
