Who are we?

Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is the national and international voice of Canada’s publicly supported colleges, institutes, cégeps, and polytechnics. We work with government, industry and international partners to champion employment-focused post-secondary education that benefits learners and contributes to growing and prosperous communities!

Our members are essential education hubs where experienced professionals and educators work in partnership with local businesses and communities to offer students the skills they need to succeed in a rapidly evolving job market.

What is Perspectives LIVE?

Perspectives LIVE is our brand-new interactive web series! The show takes advantage of what our new digitally-enhanced world has to offer to connect post-secondary leaders and experts on the topics that matter most.

After a record-setting first season, we’re back with a new exciting line up – and the opportunity to join the conversation as a sponsor!

Who can you reach?

Connect with post-secondary educators and administrators, government representatives, and industry leaders (at all levels, and from across the country)! Bilingual episodes also reach speakers of both official languages.

Reach up to 1,000 viewers per episode (depending on the topic).

Certain sponsorship options also include opportunities to share your message through other CICan vehicles!

Coming in Season 2
