The Canadian National IUPAP Liaison Committee (CNILC) is the Canadian national committee that acts as the liaison with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). The CNILC is chaired by the CAP’s Director of International Affairs and includes the CNILC Secretary, an observer from the international adhering body to IUPAP (NRC), and five CAP members representing various subdisciplines of physics. Canadian IUPAP Commission members are ex-officio members of the CNILC. CAP representatives are appointed for a period of three years, with one or two members being replaced each year.
- Assist in the worldwide development of physics, foster international cooperation in physics, and to help in the application of physics towards solving problems of concern to humanity.
- Sponsor 20 to 30 international conferences and awards grants yearly
- Solicit nominations for the IUPAP Young Scientists Prizes.
