Canadian National Committee of the CIE
Welcome to our website. The CNC/CIE is the collective Canadian voice of people interested in the science and art of light and lighting. Membership is open to anyone interested in any aspect of lighting including vision, photometry, colorimetry, photobiology and the application of these to the use of light and lighting both indoors and out. For further information on the CNC/CIE go to About the CNC. For a list of recent events see our Activities page.
As part of its mandate, the CNC/CIE supports the Standards Council of Canada by providing the core of the membership of the Canadian mirror committee to ISO/TC 274 – Light and Lighting. ISO/TC 274 is responsible for standardization in the field of application of lighting in specific cases complementary to the work items of the CIE and the coordination of drafts standards from the CIE. For further information on ISO/TC 274 see About ISO/TC 274 or visit the ISO website.

Call for Experts
In addition to Technical Committee, you are encouraged to participate in CIE Research Fora (RFs). RFs exist to facilitate ongoing knowledge exchange and research on a scientific topic or research area where there is insufficient completed scientific work to support the work of a CIE Technical Committee.
Currently the CIE has four RFs:
One key activity of the CIE is the publication of technical and scientific work in the form of Technical Reports, International Standards, and Technical Notes. Technical Notes are freely available. Technical Reports and International Standards can be purchased through the CIE Web Shop. Summaries of recent publications, including links to recent Technical Notes, can be found under New Publications.
In addition to formal publications, the CIE Board of Administration will, from time to time, issue Position Statements. Summaries of recent CIE Position Statements can be found here.
Members of the CNC/CIE are reminded that they are able to get a discount on all CIE publications. The latest discount code, effective December 2020, is currently available in the members only area under Publication Discount Code. To log in, go to CNC/CIE Members. If you do not have access, please contact the CNC/CIE Secretariat.
