2017 CanadianCIO Census

Taking the pulse of the CIO community

Ron Babin
Ryerson University

IT World Canada CIO Jim Love and Ron Babin of Ryerson University are joining forces to chart the health of the CIO role.

The 2017 CanadianCIO survey is in the field and we are looking to CIOs and senior IT leaders to take the 15-minute survey, which covers issues ranging from day-to-day priorities to the challenge of digital transformation.

This is real research, not a cute little survey with five poll questions and a predictable conclusion. The answers will require some reflection, which will make the final report truly valuable. ITWC is grateful for the sponsorship of CA Technologies to help make the census possible.

All qualified respondents will receive a copy of the completed report and a pair of tickets to the Digital Transformation Awards and Conference slated for June 14, 2017, in Toronto.

Complete the survey before April 28

for a 1 in 10 chance of winning a deluxe sports package!

($500 value)

Package contains:

  • Two tickets to a regular season MLB baseball game
  • Two tickets to an MLS regular soccer game
  • Two day passes to the Honda Indy Toronto (July 15)

CanadianCIO Innovation Summit 2016

September 24 -26, 2016

J.W. Marriott : The Rosseau, Muskoka Resort & Spa

Set at a luxury resort in beautiful Muskoka, this year’s Summit focused on digital transformation and featured interactive sessions exploring the options available to CIOs to shape the future. Whether it was an engaging presentation on blockchain, an animated discussion about the talent deficit or an exploration of the connected world of the new digital customer, the 25 CIOs in attendance participated with gusto. The 2.5 day seminar may not have solved all the problem facing organizations girding for the coming digital transformation storm, but no one left without at least one actionable item and a new cadre of colleagues with whom they can now bounce ideas.

Please explore the stories, videos and photo galleries that document the Cogeco Peer 1 sponsored event. We look forward to building on the relationships created during the Summit to fuel inspired content and events throughout the year.
