You are essential to our success.

You have a role in ensuring the best “made in Canada” approaches to access to information and privacy rights. You can do your part to ensure that research and education concerning information rights and privacy protection takes place.

So, join with us by joining the Canadian Institute for Information and Privacy Studies Society (CIIPS) and stay in contact. By becoming a member, you:

  • Take a stand for a Canada that respects our Charter rights to freedom of speech and expression, and a free media
  • Take a stand for your legislated right to access government information—a right that is vulnerable to compromise and undermining
  • Join with us as we research—and share through educational programs—the best options to ensure that national security is balanced with your right to choose your level of anonymity and privacy—and that of your family.

Join with us by joining us—through a membership. You’ll become part of a network of Canadians committed to the vital, but long term work of ensuring access to information and the right to privacy.

Membership in CIIPS has its benefits, including receiving our Newsletter, Annual Report, campaign information, and easy access to studies and educational programs. Members can also vote at our Annual General Meeting (AGM)—in person in Vancouver or by proxy if you live elsewhere.

If you have any questions, we would be happy to help. Please email

There is no membership fee at this time, but we are grateful if you choose to further support our work through donating.
