CIES was established in 1988, based in a single office with the goal of providing Calgarians immigrants a solid foothold in Canada. Through hard work and generous contributions of time and resources, CIES now resides in a beautiful new 15000 square foot building with plenty of rooms to grow. CIES is a non-profit registered charity organization, with a small dedicated group of staff and volunteers educating hundreds of new Calgarians each month.
CIES is governed by our Board of Directors, a group of devoted individuals from around the community who donate their time on a volunteer basis. Our funding comes from a combination of government and private funds; a list of our sponsors can be found below. CIES could not exist without the generous support of our sponsors. CIES Board of Directors, staff, and students express their sincere appreciation to those who have contributed to the adornment of our mission. If you wish to become a volunteer, employee or sponsor, we encourage you to contact us to discuss how you can help our mission. – less–ZoomInfo
