The Invasive Species Centre’s (ISC) vision is a Canada where land and water are free from invasive species. The ISC prevents the introduction and spread of high-risk invasive species by catalyzing action, sharing knowledge, and increasing and diversifying investments in invasive species. Incorporated as a non-for-profit in 2011, the Invasive Species Centre is a hub for collaboration and knowledge sharing. The Centre is a respected partner and leader in invasive species science, education, and action.
After hosting ICAIS 2013 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, the ISC became the ICAIS Secretariat, to provide continuity, leadership, and administrative oversight of the conference going forward. In that capacity, the ISC collaborates with the host organization of each conference, supports the Technical Program Committee, and is the home for the conference between events.
