The NATIONAL CAPITAL CONFUCIUS INSTITUTE is committed to serving as a unique forum for exploring the challenges and opportunities presented to Canada and China by today’s global economy.

By fully engaging with the resources available to us by virtue of our presence in Canada’s National Capital Region, the Institute can have a profound impact on the cultural and economic relationship between our two nations, and can serve as a forum for policy makers, and business and community leaders, including future users of research and its applications.

The Institute will provide a platform for ongoing exploration of this relationship by focusing on linguistic and sociocultural issues underlying real-world problems.  It will also provide practical knowledge through language and communication-focused certificate programs and courses, as well as research and cross-cultural dialogue, available to the Carleton University community as well as to National Capital audiences in the public, private, and cultural sectors.
