The initiatives of SICI support the creation of bi-national links between academia, government, the business community and civil society organisations by funding research and hosting seminars. The internship
and fellowship programmes of the Institute provide opportunities for individuals to gain first-hand experience in India or Canada. In addition, our Library programme provides valuable resources to
students and faculty at our Member Institutions.
The Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute became bi-national in 2005. It has the honour of being the only Institution which has One Hundred Ten (110) premier academic Institutions as its members in India (including
IITs, IIMs, NITs, Law schools, Central and State Universities) and Thirty Four (34) universities in Canada (including McGill, Queen’s and York Universities). The Institute’s scope has expanded as well to
include law, management, arts, information science, environment, science and technology including biotechnology along with humanities and social sciences.The Shastri Institute is funded by and partners
closely with government bodies both in India and Canada.
The aim is to further the bi-national ethos through different programmes facilitating scholarly research and exchanges between the Indian and Canadian Universities, Cultural organisations, Government
Bodies and United Nations Millennium Development Goals.It is an honour for NIT-T to have her Director on the board on SICI as it Vice-President.
