CanadianCIO Who’s Who is dedicated to profiling and celebrating the people and events in Canada’s IT community. We thought one of the best ways to do this was to profile those people who have been featured in our publications and events.

We are currently going through our archives and adding new people on a continuous basis. Every time you appear in our publications we will automatically link that content to an individual’s profile pages.

We’ve taken the biographies from our own files or public sources. If you have any updates or changes, or if you know of a person we should be featuring (maybe it’s you!) contact us.
