The CIC/SCI Canada Green, Clean and Sustainable Chemistry Seminar, featuring the award recipients and other leaders from industry, will precede the dinner.

The UK-based Society for Chemical Industry (SCI) and the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) signed an agreement in October 2012 in which the SCI Canada Section merged with the CIC Economics and Business Management (EBM) Division. The merged association is now CIC/SCI Canada, the business forum of the CIC. “The strategic merger has enabled CIC to strengthen its growing relationships with industry leaders and has ultimately raised the profile of the CIC/SCI Awards Dinner,” Bruce Lennox, CIC Past Chair.
