About The Canadian Institute

For over 25 years, events produced by The Canadian Institute have provided the business intelligence that Canadian decision-makers need to respond to challenges here at home, and around the world.

A unique organization, The Canadian Institute is staffed by industry specialists, lawyers and other professionals. The Canadian Institute operates as a think tank, monitoring trends and developments in all major industry sectors, the law, and public policy, with a view to providing information on the leading edge.

Headquartered in Toronto, The Canadian Institute has grown to produce over 200 events a year, attended by thousands of senior delegates from across the country.

Market-Driven Approach

Our conferences, summits, and executive briefings provide 'need-to-know' information that keeps you on top of what's happening today in your industry. A combination of lectures, hands-on workshops, panels, roundtables and case studies ensure that the right information is delivered in the right format.

Each of our events is based on a solid foundation of research conducted with industry key players. Before we can develop a program that delivers the critical information our delegates demand, we must first do the market research necessary to ensure we understand and hit the “hot button” issues for that industry sector. As an objective third party, we strive to add value to the industries we serve by producing unbiased events that balance the needs and views of different stakeholders.

Canadian Perspective - Global Reach

The Canadian Institute – together with its affiliates, American Conference Institute (New York) and C5 (London, UK) – offers over 500 conferences, forums, and summits each year around the globe. Over 25,000 senior business and public sector executives, lawyers and other professionals from Canada, the United States, Europe, Russia and CIS, China, Australia, Asia and Africa will attend our events this year.

Expanding Our Vision

An important part of The Canadian Institute's role is that of “relationship broker.” We ensure that each event offers ample opportunity for our delegates to meet colleagues from across the country or around the world – and to learn about the latest products and services that can help their organizations succeed. Our sponsors and exhibitors tell us they depend on our events to help them reach highly focused market segments, expand customer networks, build brand equity, and make a lasting, positive impression on existing and potential customers.

The Canadian Institute also publishes comprehensive materials for the majority of our conferences. These materials are specially developed by the speakers and are designed to be used by delegates as a practical reference source long after the conference is over. Learn more about our Publications.
