Chemical Institute of Canada
The Chemical Institute of Canada is a Canadian professional umbrella organization for researchers and professionals in the field of chemistry. It was founded in 1921 as the Canadian Institute of Chemistry until it merged with other groups in 1945 under its current name. The organisation comprises three groups: the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (est. 1966), the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (est. 1973), and the Canadian Society for Chemistry (est. 1985).
Its highest award is the Chemical Institute of Canada Medal, awarded annually since 1951.
Canadian Chemistry Conference and ExhibitionEdit
Every year, the Chemical Institute of Canada holds a conference to bring together researchers and professional from all over Canada. The first conference in 1918 is said to have consisted of only 100 people and lead to the formation of the Chemical Society of Canada. In 2017, the 100th conference was held in Toronto coinciding with the 150th anniversary of Canada.
The Chemical Institute of Canada awards fellowships (post-nominal FCIC) and honorary fellowships (post-nominal HFCIC).
