ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The annual Canada-in-Asia Conference (CIAC) is a multi-directional engagement platform for Canada-based and Asia-based companies, institutions, universities, and governments. CIAC convenes business leaders, experts, investors, policy-makers, researchers, and innovators from across Asia and Canada to exchange perspectives, knowledge, and ideas, with the goal of facilitating collaborative partnerships. The conference’s plenary and concurrent sessions, as well as dedicated networking times, provide a range of opportunities for engagement and exchange with likeminded partners. The annual CIAC Gala Dinner provides a centrepiece attraction for Canadians with interests in Asia, and for those based in Asia who have business, institutional, or personal connections to Canada.  

  

CIAC2025 will be held at the Raffles City Convention Centre in Singapore February 19-21, 2025. We envisage it will attract 700 attendees from across Asia and Canada.  

To stay informed about CIAC2025, we invite you to sign up for our event mailing list here. Program information and ticket purchase will be available in September 2024.  

Agenda

AGENDA

Plenary Sessions  

  

CIAC2025’s four substantive plenary sessions bring together all conference attendees and focus on major cross-cutting themes and ideas in the Canada-Asia relationship as well as global challenges such as geopolitics, the renewed space race, sustainable investment, and infrastructure.   

  

Concurrent Sessions, Sectors & Engagement Tracks  

  

CIAC2025 offers four concurrent session blocks, which can be navigated by either sectors or engagement tracks. Four sectors have been identified after extensive consultation with CIAC stakeholders and represent areas in which there is much opportunity for collaboration between and among Canada-based and Asia-based firms, researchers, and institutions. Engagement tracks offer an alternative pathway to engage for those who are more interested in themes that cut across these sectors.
