The Canadian Academy of Engineering works in close cooperation with other senior academies in Canada and internationally. It is a founding member of the Council of Canadian Academies, along with the Royal Society of Canada and the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences. The CAE works in close collaboration with the other members of the Canadian Engineering Leadership Forum which brings together representatives from Engineers Canada, the Engineering Institute of Canada, the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Canada, the National Council of Deans of Engineering, and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students, all working together to ensure a safer, cleaner, healthier and more competitive Canada. The CAE is also a member of the International Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences, which includes some 26 similar national bodies
