CICan 2020 Conference

Connection

May 3 - 5, 2020 | Montreal, Quebec

CICan’s Connection Conference – Collective Intelligence

CICan’s Annual Conference is the largest event of its kind in Canada! It fosters connections between post-secondary institutions from all across the country and around the world. In 2020, these connections will focus on strengthening our collective intelligence.

Knowing how to use and leverage all forms of intelligence is essential to the development of both individuals and societies. By using a holistic and creative approach to meet the needs of a diverse student population, colleges and institutes help foster individual and collective intelligence. This theme resonates with our amazing host city, Montreal, renowned as a hub of cultural, environmental, and artificial intelligence!
