Partnerships in innovation.

We know how much more we can do to address the extraordinary challenges facing Canada’s information and technology (ICT) sector when we build bridges and join forces with other experts across the country. At the Council, we believe that partnerships are the key to helping us drive collective action across all sectors of the Canadian ICT ecosystem. 


Developing global
ai standards

The Council is a founding member of the Open Community for Ethics and Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (OCEANIS) which facilitates global collaboration to further development of autonomous and intelligent systems. Recently, CIOSC has also joined forces with AI Global, augmenting our responsible global AI standards capacity and leadership.

Securing Canada’s
Digital Infrastructure 

In partnership with Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the Council is driving the future standards needed to secure Industrial Internet of Things devices connected to the North American electricity grid. 


Improving Privacy and
Regulatory Systems

Working together with the Canadian Regulatory Technology Association (CRTA), the Privacy and Access Council of Canada (PACC), Institute for Citizen-Centred Service (ICCS) and Open Banking Initiative Canada (OBIC) to explore how technology and data standards can improve citizen privacy, regulations and safeguard ICT ecosystems.



The CIO Strategy Council has partnered with lead organizations such as the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), Compute Ontario (CO), Internet Society-Canada Chapter (ISCC), Data Collaboration Alliance (DCA) to develop resources that encourage standards of practice in data governance and data integrity.
