Join the CIC Open Canada Community

Dear CIC-Toronto members and friends,

For those who have not yet done so, I would like to encourage you to explore and become a part of the Canadian International Council National Office Open Canada community.  The National Office has developed an excellent interactive website which both informs and encourages engagement.  One way in which members of the CIC may engage is to participate in the WEEKLY RAPID RESPONSE CONTEST.

To enter the contest input your ‘Rapid Response’ as a ‘comment’ on the site – – and at the bottom of your comment (or in the “Name” field when you click “Post As”) identify yourself as “Name, Member of x Branch”.   Those reading the branch-submitted responses may mark their favourite by clicking “Like” beside the comment.   Encourage your networks, colleagues and friends to “Like” your response!

Every Wednesday, the OPENCANADA.ORG editors will select the response from the branch member that has been “Liked” the most times.  The winning response from a branch member will be posted as a Rapid Response on the CIC homepage and included in the feed with the expert responses.    The branch member with the winning response will be notified by the OPENCANADA.ORG editors and invited to add their photo and biography to their response post.

Please note that all responses must conform to the Submissions and Commenting standards in the OPENCANADA.ORG Terms of Use (
Engage and enjoy!
