AIESEC in Canada

What we do

70 Years of Leadership Development

We enable young people to develop their leadership through practical experiences in challenging environments

To date, we’ve delivered over 480,000 internship and volunteering experiences, and it’s all been led by young leaders who believe in making the world a better place.

We are a youth leadership movement

We are passionately driven by one cause, peace and fulfillment of humankind's potential

AIESEC was established in 1948 after World War II, where seven youth across seven countries had a dream of building cross-cultural understanding across nations. They hoped to change the world, one person and one internship at a time. 10 years later, in 1958, AIESEC in Canada was founded in Montreal.
1948
By 1977, AIESEC was present in 50 countries across six continents! To this date, over 40,000 young people around the world had participated in a leadership development experience.
1977
In 2010, AIESEC crosses 10,000 experiences delivered in one year alone for the first time. By now, over 230,000 experiences have been provided, all facilitated by youth for youth.
2010
In 2015, AIESEC’s youth leaders from 126 countries and territories in collaboration with the Office of the Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth gathered at the United Nations Headquarters to promote and drive youth participation in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The relevance and contribution of AIESEC is clearer than ever.
2015
In sum, AIESEC is a global network of people that simply believe that youth leadership is not an option, but our responsibility. Now the question is: Will you join the movement?
Now

The leadership we develop

In AIESEC, we believe that youth are the key to shaping a better future. Through each and every experience we provide, we strive to develop youth leaders with the following qualities.

Ability to Empower Others: Communicates clearly, engages in meaningful conversations, and creates spaces that empower others to take action.

Solution Oriented: Flexible, ready to take risks, and actively finds solutions to challenges.

World Citizen: Aware of global events and enjoys taking an active role in contributing towards making it a better place for everyone.

Self Aware: Understands personal strengths, lives by his/her values and constantly explores passions.

Can you imagine the world when we engage and develop every young person to obtain these qualities? We want to see a brighter future for all. This is why we do what we do.

    More about AIESEC

    AIESEC is a global platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. We are a non-political, independent, not-for-profit organisation run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education. Its members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national/social origin.
    Since we were founded, we have engaged and developed over 1,000,000 young people who have been through an AIESEC experience. The impact of our organisation can be seen through our alumni who represent business, NGO and world leaders, including one Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Martti Ahtisaari of Finland.

    AIESEC (pronounced eye-sek) was originally an acronym for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales. AIESEC is no longer used as an acronym but simply as the name of the organisation.
    Members of AIESEC are known as “AIESECers.”

    We are a global network of young leaders under the age of 30 who strive to better themselves and the communities around them. We are passionate about world issues, leadership development, cultural understanding and experiential learning.
    The organisation spans 126 countries and territories and every aspect of AIESEC’s operations are managed by students and recent graduates.
    We have operated in this way since our inception, making us uniquely “by young people, for young people”, for over 65 years. The global leadership teams are elected by the membership annually.

    AIESEC does not have a pre-defined or officially accepted political tendency or subscription.
    AIESEC is not a subsidiary or dependent entity of any other bodies in its work, sustainability or decisions.
    We are in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), affiliated with the UN DPI, member of ICMYO, and is recognised by UNESCO.

    AIESEC was founded in 1948 in 7 countries in Europe by Jean Choplin (France), Bengt Sjøstrand (Sweden), and Dr. Albert Kaltenthaler (Germany). Over 65 years later we are present in 126 countries and territories.

    Anyone who believes in the AIESEC vision, supports the mission of AIESEC, and lives by the AIESEC values is a part of the youth leadership movement, and hence is an AIESECer. They can be our partners who relate to our organizational values and vision, or it can be our parents who constantly support us to give our best to our leadership development journeys.
