Professional Designations of the Constituent Societies of the CIC

The Constituent Societies of the CIC bestow professional designations on their members and honorary members. We encourage our members and honorary members to use these designations after their names wherever appropriate.

Any member of the Constituent Societies of the CIC, upon meeting the minimum requirements and paying the appropriate fees, is given the designation of MCIC.

Associate Member of the Chemical Institute of Canada (ACIC)

Anyone associated with the practice of, or with an interest in, chemistry, who does not qualify as a full member, but who wishes to support the objectives of the Constituent Societies of the CIC, may apply as an associate member and use the ACIC designation.

Fellow of the Chemical Institute of Canada (FCIC)

CIC Fellowship is a senior class of membership that recognizes the merits of members of the Constituent Societies of the CIC who have made outstanding contributions to the chemical sciences and engineering. Fellows of the Constituent Societies of the CIC are given the designation FCIC.
