Inter-Council Network

The Inter-Council Network (ICN) is a coalition of the eight Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation. These independent member-based Councils are committed to global social justice and social change, and represent over 350 diverse civil society organizations from across Canada. The ICN provides a national forum in which the Councils collaborate for improved effectiveness and identify common priorities for collective action. Rooted in communities across Canada, we are leaders in public engagement at a local and regional level, and we are recognized for bringing regional knowledge and priorities to the national level.

MCIC is a contributing council of the ICN. Some of the work we have done collectively are:
