*Information for Canadian members:

November 2011 was significant in the progression of IIA Canada’s transition to its own Institute. A Canadian delegation presented the draft Canadian Institute (CI) Business Plan to both the North American Board (NAB) and the Global Executive Committee. Both governing bodies gave IIA Canada support to continue with implementation of the transition plan.

As a team, the Interim Canadian Board (ICB) and IIA Canada staff now turn their attention to finalizing and executing the CI Implementation Plan. Full details of the progress being made can be found here or by emailing
