Welcome to the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement.

The Centre provides leadership in the integration and advancement of immigrants into Canadian society through English language learning, career advancement, intercultural awareness, and global citizenship. The foundation for success has been built and the motivation to innovate is stronger than ever.

From this extensive work, we have conducted research, developed curricula and delivered training to assist practitioners, employers, and learners within our community and around the globe. We are a leader in the development of award-winning programs and learning resources that assist in the delivery of workplace, language, and intercultural competency training.

The Centre is a national leader in social innovation. We support immigrants in achieving their aspirations, we celebrate the advantage of diversity, and we maximize immigrant contributions to Canada's social and economic vibrancy.
