The Canadian Institute in Greece
The Canadian Institute in Greece is a non-profit, charitable organization whose mission is to promote scholarly research and cultural exchange in Greece.
It provides an international forum for scholars studying Greece and her culture and it assists Canadian professors and students (who are working in Greece) with facilities and services to further their research in the classics, ancient through modern Greek history, the history of art, anthropology, and the fine arts.
In this way, the Institute contributes to maintaining a high standard of teaching and scholarship in the universities and colleges of Canada and elsewhere.
It also provides opportunities for cultural interchange between Canadians and Greeks through events such as lectures, tours, conferences, and exhibitions.
The Institute offers members practical assistance in dealing with unfamiliar customs and regulations. Because the Greek government requires that archaeological work by foreigners must be carried out under the auspices of their own national organizations with offices in Greece, CAIA offers Canadian scholars the opportunity to conduct independent archaeological fieldwork in Greece.
Although known in Greece as the Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens, the Institute is directly responsible to its mother company, the Canadian Academic Institute in Athens, which operates solely in Canada.
