The Chemical Institute of Canada works to advance the principles and practices of the chemical sciences for the betterment of society through three foci:

We support chemical science professionals at all stages of their career, helping to foster personal development and confidence. We engage students, the public, and Canada’s leaders in the wonders of the chemical sciences, creating dialogue, and growing understanding of the value the chemical sciences brings to the world.
