Vancouver Chapter

Join us in Vancouver

The Vancouver Chapter is a vibrant one, where education and networking are paramount in our value proposition. Connect with peers at our Beers with Peers networking events (virtual and in-person) or during one of our education sessions. 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.
