In 2017, CIAMS founded the Vancouver International Music Competition (VIMC) to commemorate Canada’s 150th Anniversary. As the first large-scale international classical music competition in British Columbia, the VIMC pioneered a platform for widespread intercultural music-making, while promoting Canadian composers around the globe.
