CIJA (Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs)
The three roles that CIJA plays in Canada are:
- Improving life in Canada for all Jewish communities and all Canadians.
- Educating Canadians about Israel and building support for Israelis.
- Strengthening Jewish security and grassroots advocacy.
As a member of the Jewish Federations of Canada, CIJA acts as the advocacy agent for the Atlantic Jewish Council. They work hard to increase multi-lateral Canada and Israel diplomatic relations based on shared values and interests. Another aspect to the multi-lateral relations between Canada and Israel is trade, research & development, and scientific cooperation. The relationship is mutually beneficial improving the lives of both the Canadian and Israeli communities at large.
