CIESC Executive Board meeting – February, 2021

Welcome to the Comparative and International Education Society of Canada!

Our goal is to promote comparative and international studies in Canadian education, but we are part of an even larger international society that seeks to link all types of education through a focused group.

You can look at our constitution, read more about us or about our history, or see our executive members.

We also have a series of awards and grants available to members. If you would like to become a member, please look at the information about membership.

Other interesting publications include our newsletter, as well as the CIE Journal.

Important Message Regarding Membership Fee and Conference Registration

CIESC waives membership fee for Indigenous, Black, and racialized students:

In alignment with CSSE and Congress initiatives to support access to the conference, CIESC/SCECI has waived its membership fee for graduate students who identify as Indigenous, Black, and racialized students. To arrange for membership fee refunds, please send an email to Dr. Melody Viczko, Vice-President and President-Elect (mviczko@uwo.ca), by June 15, 2021. The financial manager at CSSE who manages CIESC/SCECI funds will arrange for the refund. We recognize that this process needs improvement and we’re working on ways to better organize for inclusive practices in our membership processes.  
Here’s what you need to know about conference registration: 
March 31 is the last day to complete early bird registration. You can still register after this date, but regular conference fees will apply. CSSE has sent out information about the registration that we will also share here with you: 
All registration is coordinated through the Congress website at https://fhss.swoogo.com/21-registration-inscription/begin?reg_type_id=153494. You can register for the Congress at that site. 
If you have already registered for the conference, please also email Michael Holden, Conference Manager, at conference-congres@csse-scee.ca who can help in the process of Congress issuing you a full refund for your CSSE and Congress registration fees for this year if you identify as an Indigenous or Black student.
