Dates of existence



The Canadian Corporate-Higher Education Forum (C-HEF) was established to bring the leadership of major Canadian private and public corporations into contact with the presidents, principals, and rectors of the country's universities. (C-HEF is a sister organization of the Business-Higher Education Forum of the USA.) Consultations with potential members began in 1981. The first Corporate-Higher Education Forum was held at Concordia University on May 20, 1983. The Forum was an initiative of Concordia University, which agreed to house its secretariat. In [199?] the secretariat moved to Calgary, Alberta.

The Forum aims to advance mutual understanding through an exchange of ideas; to develop policy statements on issues and questions of mutual interest and concern; to provide a vehicle for corporate and university leadership to reflect upon issues of national significance, and to support and sponsor cooperative activities.
