CIJA’s national campus team provides expertise, resources and issue management support to Jewish and pro-Israel student groups across the country. Through a range of innovative resources, campaigns and support, the Centre strives to empower student leaders and local campus professionals to defend Israel and advocate on behalf of Jewish students, while building alliances with non-Jewish students on campuses both large and small. Centre staff also reaches out to university faculty and administration across Canada both working on issues of concern to the Jewish community, and in building academic bridges by Canadian and Israeli academic institutions.

Each year, CIJA provides grants to Canadian students who are interested in organizing Israel advocacy events on their local university or college campus. If you are hosting an event, and would like funding, please click here.
