AIB Canada’s mission is to promote teaching and research in all areas of international business within the framework of the worldwide AIB and to act as a forum for the development and exchange of views on issues in international business. A key venue for this purpose is our annual conference. We welcome suggestions from members on how we can best serve you. Please reach out to AIB Canada’s leadership team to let us know of your interests, ideas, and questions.

We implemented various initiatives for IB scholars in Canada. For example, we host the yearly AIB Canada Chapter Conference,  implemented the ‘Burning Issues In IB’ webinar series, and coordinate Ph.D. and early career scholars’ networking and learning opportunities.
