The Institute’s staff act as liaison between Canadian scholars and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Through the CIG’s Athens office, members can obtain passes allowing free entry to the archaeological sites and museums of Greece as well as advice on the logistics of travel and planned itineraries. Members can also apply though CIG for permission to study objects housed in Greek museums and for permission to carry out excavation and archaeological survey in Greece.
What We Do
All Canadian excavations and surveys must apply for permissions via the CIG.
