Российское общество изучения Канады РОИК берёт своё начало в сентябре 1989 г., когда по инициативе сотрудников Отдела Канады Института США и Канады Академии наук СССР группой московских канадоведов была образована Советская ассоциация изучения Канады (САИК). Её первым президентом по праву был избран академик Г.А. Арбатов, инициатор организации в далёком 1972 г. канадских исследований в тогдашнем Институте США АН СССР. В сентябре 1992 г. САИК была преобразована в Российскую ассоциацию изучения Канады (РАИК). В апреле 2002 г. РАИК получила новое название Российское общество изучения Канады (РОИК).
ЧЛЕНСТВО Согласно Уставу РОИК, её членом может стать любой гражданин России, разделяющий эти цели, уплачивающий членские и целевые взносы и принимающий участие в деятельности Общества. Оно объединяет в своих рядах учёных, преподавателей вузов, журналистов, бизнесменов, работников государственных и общественных организаций, студентов и аспирантов различных вузов. Штаб-квартира РОИК находится в помещении Отдела Канады Института США и Канады Российской Академии наук, который является крупнейшим центром канадоведения как в России, так и во всем регионе Центральной и Восточной Европы.
ДЕЯТЕЛЬНОСТЬ С 1994 г. дважды в год выходит печатный орган Общества "Вестник РОИК" (вышло 19 номеров на русском и 3 номера на английском языках). Уже в 2002 г. был опубликован 7-й номер сборника работ членов Общества "Канадский ежегодник". Материалы и обзоры всех международных конференций РОИК изданы на русском и английском языках.
РОИК способствует получению её членами целевых грантов канадского правительства на поездки в Канаду для сбора материалов, необходимых для подготовки научных, диссертационных и дипломных работ по канадской проблематике в области гуманитарных и социальных наук, а также для совершенствования вузовских учебных курсов по Канаде.
Мы поддерживаем и развиваем связи с канадоведами и их организациями в зарубежных странах. В 1992 г. наше Общество было принято в члены и с тех пор активно участвует в работе Международного Совета изучения Канады (МСИК), который является федерацией, объединяющей, координирующей и представляющей деятельность 20 национальных и межнациональных ассоциаций, а также центров изучения Канады из более чем 30 стран Северной и Южной Америки, Европы и Азии. В целом же международное сообщество канадоведов насчитывает свыше 7000 человек. Штаб-квартира МСИК находится в столице Канады Оттаве, где Советом издаётся "Международный журнал изучения Канады" и еженедельный бюллетень "Контакт" (имеется электронная версия), знакомящий с новостями в области канадоведения во всём мире. РОИК также участвует в деятельности Европейской сети изучения Канады (ЕСИК), объединяющей организации канадоведов Европы.

Programs in Support of Canadian Studies Understanding Canada - Canadian Studies Overview The ICCS acts as the administrative agent for several programs established by the International Education and Youth Division (PCE) of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT), or under its responsibility. The first DFAIT programs in support of Canadian Studies were established over 25 years ago. Since 1987, a number of them are under the administrative responsibility of the ICCS, following renewed contractual and contribution agreements with the International Education and Youth Division of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT).

Understanding Canada As of April 1st, 2008, the structure of the successful Canadian Studies program has changed to become "Understanding Canada". The changes are made in the context of the Government's Advantage Canada agenda and in tandem with DFAIT's more strategic approach to Public Diplomacy. "Understanding Canada" will be more relevant to government and departmental priorities while continuing to respect academic freedom. Moreover, it will take into account changes in post-secondary education in Canada and abroad and a growing emphasis on comparative studies and research.
The general objective of the Programs in support of Understanding Canada – Canadian Studies is to develop a better knowledge and understanding of Canada among foreign leadership groups by providing support for the development of teaching, research and publication about Canada abroad. In the case of programs designed for individuals, the purpose of the awards is to assist selected academics and graduate students to undertake studies relating to Canada by contributing towards return international airfare and a weekly/monthly allowance during the study visit in Canada.

Faculty Enrichment Program (FEP) Guidelines This program of support is designed to increase knowledge and understanding of Canada abroad by assisting academics in higher education institutions to develop and teach courses about Canada in their own discipline, as part of their regular teaching load. The program enables academic award holders to come to Canada and gather the necessary information and material to devise a new course on Canada, or to modify or extend significantly the Canadian component of an existing course(s). Comparative courses may be regarded as "courses on Canada" with substantial Canadian content (33% or more).
APPLICANTS Although we welcome applications from all disciplines lending themselves most readily to Canadian Studies course development we are particularly interested in projects that have policy relevance for Canada and Canadas foreign policy. Topics that are highly relevant to Canadas foreign policy include Democracy & Rule of Law, Economic Development, Environment, Managing Diversity, North American Partnership, Peace and Security. (Purely scientific subjects such as physics, chemistry, medicine, engineering, etc., which would not lead to a better knowledge and understanding of Canada per se are not eligible, nor are proposals which focus exclusively on technological or methodological issues).
Applicants must be: teaching members of the academic staff of a recognized institution of higher education or equivalent degree- granting institute in a participating country (part-time lecturers and teaching assistants are not eligible); proficient in either English or French. In addition, while not mandatory, applicants should provide evidence of their interest in or involvement with Canada prior to the application, if such has been the case. This may be demonstrated by courses they have already given, research they have undertaken, extra- mural activities, or active membership in an association for Canadian Studies in their region or country.
Recipients of an award under this program are not eligible to apply in consecutive competitions. There will normally also be a period of 3 years between awards, unless the second course proposal is on a different topic and the course from the first award is still being taught. For example, a recipient cannot apply in the competition, but can apply in the competition if the new course proposal is on a different topic and the course derived from the first award is still being taught; to upgrade and update the course derived from the award, one will only be eligible to apply in the competition.
Terms and Conditions The International Council for Canadian Studies through a contribution of the Government of Canada and with the assistance of the appropriate Canadian Mission, will award grants to successful candidates on condition that the candidate must give a written undertaking on his/her own behalf that: he/she will be employed as a teaching member of the academic staff at the institution where he/she is currently employed for at least one full academic year following the period of the award; he/she will begin to teach the new course or part-courses related to the award no later than the academic year following the period of the award; as much as possible, he/she will offer the course developed as a result of this award at least three times during the six academic years following the period of the award; the course on Canada to be given as a result of the award will be new or a considerably modified or extended version of a course previously taught by the applicant and will treat one or more aspects of Canadian Studies in a substantive way; he/she will make all arrangements relating to the visit, including: international travel arrangements; passport and visa (if needed); accommodation and travel within Canada; medical insurance while in Canada; visit plans, including inter alia appointments with Canadian academics and other resource persons, access to libraries and other study centres, etc.
the period to which the award will apply will be used exclusively for study designed to enhance the award holder's capability to teach about Canada; the award will not be used to pursue research in conjunction with another project; and, where supplemental funding is obtained from elsewhere, the time devoted to professional development under this program will be at least proportional to the ratio of the value of this award to that of the total income received; he/she will remain in Canada throughout the period to which the award relates; a report detailing the professional activities undertaken during the visit to Canada including the new course outline developed as a result of the award will be sent to the appropriate Mission within 60 days of the completion of the trip or no later than March 1st of the following year. Failure to provide such documentation by that date may result in forfeiture of the final payment of the award.
