CIPS National Employment Web Site Policy

1.) Confidentiality and Privacy:

a) Firms advertising on the CIPS Employment website are expected to:

  • adhere to the CSA's ‘Model Code for Protection of Personal Information in Canada'.
  • make applicants aware of the company's compliance with the CSA Code. This includes treating electronic delivery of CVs with the same compliance to the Code as paper copy.

A statement of CIPS' commitment to the Code is posted on the entry page of this site.

b) Membership in the professional association(s)* appropriate to the placement industry and/or I.T. contracting firms will be prominently displayed on advertisers' material. Such affiliations, while not mandatory for inclusion on the CIPS Employment site, are encouraged. Professional designations** for individual practitioners are equally valued.

2.) Professional Conduct:

a) Applicant representation:


  • Resumes are presented to potential employers/clients by the company in a manner that accurately represents the individual's qualifications.



  • Reference information ( from professional colleagues provided by the applicant ) will be presented as agreed upon between the client and the company.

    b) Applicant responsibility: CIPS members are responsible for familiarity with the CIPS' Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct, particularly as they apply to relationships with employers/clients. {E & E1-7}

    c) Contract information: As much information as can be reasonably obtained from the client will be presented to the applicant by the company about the potential position or contract in a timely manner.

    d) Fees: The company will provide a written contract, setting out rate of payment to the applicant for the position offered, once agreement is finalized with the employer/client.

    3.) Rules for Removal from the CIPS National Employment Site:

    A company, if subject of a complaint from a CIPS member, shall be temporarily removed from the site. ( The member's complaint must be submitted in a brief written format to the Executive Director at the CIPS National Office.) If the company wishes to be reinstated, a written request must be sent to the E.D. at the National Office, providing an explanation of the issue and suggestions for resolution. A company receiving more than one member complaint during a calendar year is ineligible for reinstatement.
