IT World Canada is proud to host the official members blog of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS).

Founded in 1958, CIPS members work tirelessly towards strengthening the Canadian IT industry by establishing standards and sharing best practices for the benefit of individual IT professionals and the sector as a whole. CIPS represents thousands of IT professionals across the country, who we also count among our readers. Through our organizational partnership we seek to escalate the discussion around IT professionalism in Canada as well as the other issues and concerns of CIPS members.

Veteran members of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) regularly blog for ITWorldCanada.com, giving their insights on news and best practices in information technology.
