Vancouver Chapter

Join us in Vancouver

The Vancouver Chapter is the vibrant founding chapter of the CIO Association of Canada. Our community of senior IT professionals is a hub of trusted peers, education, and career development. Connect with us at our in-person professional development events, online, and/or at our informal monthly gatherings (“Beers with Peers”). You will be welcomed by friendly faces who understand your unique challenges. You will not regret it.

Dianne Lapierre
Past Chapter President

The CIO Association of Canada has made a huge impact on my success as a CIO, through networking, information sharing and thought leadership. The role of CIO can be a lonely one in organizations – our peers are really our customers and it’s tough to ask for support from them when challenges arise. The contacts I have made in my 6 years of association and involvement with CIOCAN and the local Vancouver Chapter have been invaluable in my career and my personal growth.
