About Us

CANIS: Canadian Network on Information and Security is a multidisciplinary initiative involving four faculties of the University of Calgary: Faculty of Arts, School of Public Policy, Schulich School of Engineering, and Faculty of Law.

CANIS examines the impact of the domestic and international information environments (IE) on Canadian national defence and security with a primary objective to draw novel conclusions about the IE and its use as an operational domain. 

CANIS is aiming to identify the best practices from domestic and international actors, and how they could be applied to the Canadian context, specific information environment, and societal composition.
