The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada), in partnership with Universities Canada, invite you to join us for the first two thematic Canada-in-Asia Conferences (CIACs), which will be held back-to-back in February 2024 in Singapore: 

CIAC2024: Agri-food and CIAC2024: Climate Solutions bring together experts, investors, policy-makers, researchers, business leaders, and innovators from across Asia and Canada to exchange perspectives, knowledge, and ideas and to create collaborative partnerships in these two critical sectors.


CIAC2024: Agri-food and CIAC2024: Climate Solutions is bridged by the CIAC2024: Gala Dinner on the night of February 27. All conference delegates will be automatically registered for the Gala Dinner, which is also open to registered guests not attending either CIAC2024 conference. The annual CIAC: Gala Dinner is an opportunity for Canada-connected people, organizations, and institutions from across Asia to convene, build networks, and celebrate all things Canada-in-Asia.

* Canadian university participants, please note that the Asia-Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE 2024) Conference will be taking place in Perth, Australia, from March 4-8, 2024.

The Canada-in-Asia Conferences

APF Canada and Universities Canada partnered to create the inaugural Canada-in-Asia Conference in 2023 (CIAC2023) to catalyze a new and transformative phase of Canada-Asia engagement. CIAC2023, held in Singapore over three days in February 2023, brought together more than 530 Canada-connected individuals, businesses, and institutions. More than 370 participants were alumni of Canadian universities, with many based in Asia.


The success of CIAC2023 in gathering people and ideas from across Canada and Asia to work on some of today’s most pressing global challenges – feeding the world, fighting climate change, and building more inclusive societies, among others – and the enthusiasm for sustained momentum in connecting Canada and Asia has led to a commitment by APF Canada and Universities Canada to convene a major multi-sector Canada-in-Asia Conference every second year, and more targeted, thematic CIACs in intervening years.
