        • We do not actively recruit IT professionals

      • CIPS adopted the BCS Study Guide as the interim Body of Knowledge for certifying professionals in Canada.

        • This means that eventually we may be able to talk about reciprocity of designations.

        • At the International Level, CIPS and BCS are working towards a Global Professional Designation.

      • BCS Exams are recognized at Canadian Universities

    • Has not been much evidence of CIPS Toronto wanting to make use of the synergy from working together
