Who we are
ACIC VISION: Atlantic Canadians engaged as global citizens to create a just world.
ACIC is a coalition of individuals, organizations, and institutions working in the Atlantic region, which are committed to achieving global sustainability in a peaceful and healthy environment, with social justice, human dignity, and participation for all. ACIC supports its members in international cooperation and education through collective leadership, networking, information, training and coordination, and represents their interests when dealing with government and others.
ACIC also takes a leadership role in engaging Atlantic Canadians around issues relating to international development, global sustainability, and social justice. Through our public engagement work, ACIC strives to give Atlantic Canadians the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to become active global citizens.
ACIC is a rich and vibrant coalition; our varied members - over 70 in the Atlantic Provinces - are united by our strong commitment to building a better world. Please check the members page for more details on ACIC's membership.
The ACIC logo was updated in 2013. It represents the four Altantic Canadian Provinces through the four rays of sunshine, our eastern location in Canada in the presence of the sun (rising in the East) and our location on the ocean in the form of the blue wave. Our global perspective is also present in the globe tucked under the sun and rays.
