The Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute is a non-profit organization with registered charitable status in Canada. We are funded through membership dues and grants from the Government of India Ministry of Human Resource Development, the Canadian International Development Agency, the Government of Canada Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and private donors. The Institute is governed by a bi-national Executive Council, which is elected by representatives from Canadian and Indian Member Institutions. The presidency alternates annually between Canada and India. The Institute also operates with guidance of our Indian Administrative Committee and with advice from the Indian Advisory Council.
We could not run our programs without the help of our volunteers who adjudicate applications, perform peer reviews, and help planning programs and in fundraising.
