The Electron−Ion Collider is a major new facility scheduled to be built at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, NY, by the US Department of Energy. Polarized electrons will collide with polarized protons, light ions, and heavy nuclei at luminosities far beyond what is presently available, with the goal of answering fundamental questions central to nuclear physics today. Canadian subatomic physicists have participated extensively in the planning of this new laboratory and have chartered a multi−institutional EIC Canada Collaboration to coordinate participation. This talk will give a brief summary of the proposed facility and the some of the physics topics we plan to study.
