Calgary Chapter

Join us in Calgary

The Calgary Chapter is a large but close-knit group of professionals who honestly and enthusiastically share new ideas, wax techno-philosophical, and solve complex problems together. Our diverse group contributes to a collective intelligence that spans industries, sectors, education, and experience levels. We welcome new members!

Ross Ballendine
Calgary Chapter President

“Membership in the CIO Association of Canada offers a unique opportunity for connecting with IT leaders across Canada. As IT leaders we are often seeking common goals and working to overcome common challenges, and we therefore have a great deal to offer each other. My network has expanded significantly as a result of my membership in the CIO Association of Canada, and each connection provides the opportunity to be challenged by an entirely different perspective. As IT leaders we understand that technology leadership cannot occur in a vacuum – that we need to be connected to a community of peers. The CIO Association of Canada has proven itself to be that community.”
