Canada Israel Experience (CIE) is an organization born of the collective vision to strengthen Jewish identity among Jewish youth and young adults through participation in meaningful Israel Experience programs. Since 1996, CIE has proven to uphold a tradition of excellence in preserving the highest quality of educational, logistical, and safety standards. As the leading Israel tour organizer in Canada, our organization is committed to ensuring that all of our programs provide CIE participants with a unique, unparalleled Israel Experience. It is Canada Israel Experience’s goal to meet and respond to the needs of the Canadian Jewish community.
As a not-for-profit organization, CIE is funded through Jewish Federations of Canada - UIA by local UJA / CJA Federations across Canada. CIE prides itself on playing an active role within the Jewish Federation system. In this regard, Canada Israel Experience is the only Canadian tour organizer that maintains a national network of local Israel Experience representatives. In every major Canadian Jewish community, CIE employs a regional Canada Israel Experience professional ready to facilitate and assist participants in preparing for their Israel Experience. In addition to helping orient individuals before their trip to Israel, CIE community representatives are also eager to help all interested Canada Israel Experience alumni obtain the necessary tools and knowledge needed to get involved in their home Jewish community and/or return to Israel.
