The primary objectives of the Institute are to advance education in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through the following programs:
- acting as a resource centre and database for information concerning education in these fields and collecting best practices in encouraging students to stay in school through college and university;
- creating the archives of Canadian women in science, engineering, mathematics and technology;
- promoting research in both developed and developing countries concerning the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as both an educational and career choice and to make the results of that research available to the interested public; and
- developing and maintaining a website to raise public awareness concerning these fields of study and to make the results of research available to the interested public
