How CIPS Toronto works
CIPS Toronto is volunteer organization of people just like you.
We work in partnership with the National office and our peers across Canada to help shape public
policy and establish guidelines for Professionalism. To provide leadership in information systems and
technologies by developing and promoting quality standards and practices, research, certification, and
professional development while safeguarding the public interest.
For example we are involved in a number of initiatives related to setting standards within the IT profession.
Two of the main programs are: the certification of individual IT practitioners (the I.S.P. designation) and
the accreditation of computer science programs in Canadian Colleges and Universities.
