Come Together at the CIC

In 2023, CIC is proud to be focusing on the phenomenal initiatives and objectives which our constituent societies, membership, and broader Canadian chemical community can accomplish when we come together. Join us, and don’t miss out on being a part of our incredible Canadian chemical sciences community. 


Chemical from shellfish could help keep avocados fresh

Nearly 60% of food is lost or wasted each year, and short-lived fruits and vegetables are a big part of that. Researchers at the University of Guelph are testing a new kind of edible coating to see if it can extend the shelf life of that most fickle of fruits: avocados.

Presented by the members of our Subject Divisions, these free seminar series unite people in the same specialty no matter where they are in Canada. Learn and grow with these series highlighting leaders in the field from across Canada and the world.
