Barj & Rita Dhahan, Sarup & Indy Mann, Ajit & Manjit Thandi, Gurtek & Kuljinder Shoker, Harinder K. Dhahan and friends contributed over $500,000 to Carleton University, Ottawa in 2011 to create the Canada-India Centre for Excellence (CICE). The Centre facilitates relationships between stakeholders in Canada and India by providing experiential learning opportunities, advisory and mentoring services, faculty development, curriculum, and health care opportunities.
In partnership with Carleton University’s Global Academy, CICE provides professional development training programs for those looking to upgrade skills and the Canada-India Accelerator Program provides Canadian women with the opportunity to gain mentorship in exploring untapped markets in India.
In 2019 CICE and GN College signed an agreement to provide short term training programs for nursing students from India.
