About CIPS

Since 1958, CIPS has helped strengthen the Canadian IT industry by establishing standards and sharing best practices for the benefit of individual IT professionals and the sector as a whole. As Canada’s Association of Information Technology Professionals, we represent thousands of members across the country.

CIPS offers:

  • Networking opportunities
  • Certification of IT professionals (I.S.P. and ITCP designations)
  • Accreditation of IT university and college programs
  • A niche IT Job Board
  • A voice to government on issues that affect the profession and industry



“CIPS is the only official Canadian general assembly member to the UN-founded International Federation (IFIP) as the voice of the computing professional and industry on best practices, standards, policies, professionalism, certification, accreditation, economic development, innovation and education. Canada’s prime minister states: “Your efforts have made positive and lasting contributions to Canada’s economic growth and competitiveness.” By joining CIPS, computing professionals get recognition, author papers and articles, take leadership roles, serve on provincial and national councils, shape Canadian and international standards and policies, form valuable career relationships, grow technical and leadership skills, set educational standards in Canada and internationally, grow their profession and make a lasting contribution to their industry. CIPS has my highest endorsement!”
