Dear CIOCAN Members,

Thank you for being a part of the CIO Association of Canada. We are here to advocate for you in your role as a CIO and IT leader, to help drive and build best practices in technology and innovation across Canada. Our goal is to help you grow through programming, exclusive member events, access to our talent board and more. We are strong and expanding with close to 500 members nationwide.

If you attended the 2022 CIO Peer Forum®, we hope you found value in the event. With 330 attendees and over 20 presentations on the Future of Work, Cybersecurity, and Innovation, we delivered a diverse range of topics and invited leading experts to inform you of industry trends.

In 2022, we will launch a new Career Development Centre powered by Randstad to help champion your career development. We will recharge the Peer Value Exchange so that you can easily connect with colleagues on the most pressing issues.

We hope you continue to join us in our journey to build excellence in the Canadian technology sector.

Philippe Johnston
