Calgary Immigrant Educational Society

With humble beginnings in 1988, the Calgary Immigrant Educational Society (CIES) has grown from a small volunteer-led initiative with only Mr. Salim M. Sindhu as its steward, to a 130+ staff not-for-profit charitable organization with two locations in north-east and south-east Calgary. Devoted to assisting immigrants and low income Canadians through various levels of language, employment training, computer, accounting, and settlement programming, CIES has provided tens of millions of dollars worth of service to over 250,000 people in its 29-year history. Today, CIES assists over 1,200 students a day, 6 days a week, with programs in-house and online.
