Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs

http://www.couch.ca

The Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs (CIPA) has a mission of “increasing awareness and understanding of domestic and international issues amongst people in Canada, through open and inclusive discussion and without advocacy or partisanship.” The CIPA has met for over 70 years to explore the central policy challenges of the day. Its main event is an annual summer conference on the shores of Lake Couchiching. The CIPA also holds a number of seminars and roundtables throughout the year across Canada. It receives funding from both public and private sources.

People from many disciplines and with varied interests participate in the Institute’s conferences. Issues examined at Couchiching conferences have included social reform, the state of the economy, the challenges of world peace, rebuilding the post-war world, technology, the environment, and various aspects of globalization. A Youth Committee of the Institute was created in 1987 to encourage youth participation. The Institute also awards scholarships and bursaries, and holds an annual essay competition. A western branch of the CIPA – Couchiching West – is based out of Vancouver. The main activities of the Institute are based in Ontario.
