The UK-based SCI and the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) signed an agreement in October 2012 in which the SCI Canada Section merged with the CIC Economics and Business Management (EBM) Division. The merged association is now SCI Canada, the business forum of the CIC. Commenting on SCI Canada, Bruce Lennox, CIC Chair said, 'The strategic merger has enabled CIC to strengthen its growing relationships with industry leaders and has ultimately raised the profile of the SCI Awards Dinner.'
