Partnerships Overview

Partnerships Overview:

Partnerships2As the only independent, not-for-profit association of CIOs in Canada, CIOCAN has established important partnerships with a number of research, advocacy, media and event-based organizations that are committed to the profession of CIO. All organizational relationships are established through, or in conjunction with the National Board.
The Association also has a relationship with Sky’s the Limit, a charitable organization committed to making IT hardware accessible to as many students as possible.

CIOCAN is open to a limited number of additional partner relationships in 5 categories.

If you are interested in applying for a partnership, applications may be submitted online based on the type of partner relationship you are interested in.

Applications provide details on the specific criteria we assess in potential partnerships and will enable us to measure your partner request against our established criteria.  Applications  are reviewed monthly and submitted to our National Board for further discussion.
