Canada is blessed with many academic institutions from coast to coast. Some of these institutions are members of CIPH, and all are committed to the advancement of learning.


CIPH has the same commitment, but with a twist. CIPH is committed to the advancement of learning in support of the health, strength and prosperity of our members. We are an ally in developing the talent and skills needed for our members to succeed. 


Through your membership with CIPH you can access technical training for those on your front lines; management training for your current and future leaders; plus timely updates on new codes regulations where we translate policy into real terms.


CIPH is the only training organization committed to providing training specific to our industry ranging from the basics of wholesale counter sales to our recently launched Executive Education program in partnership with the Schulich School of Business at York University. Most importantly, these programs are designed with members in mind, and they are developed using feedback from members, making them precise, cost effective opportunities.

While CIPH is confident in the quality of these programs it is also important to emphasize the precision that go into format and scheduling so these programs are as accessible as possible to our membership. As your association, we are well aware of the natural industry cycles and consider them in scheduling the time, length, location and format for every seminar, webinar, program or school. 


Appreciating the value of knowledge, we strongly encourage all members to engage more with our education programs. We respect that there may be alternatives in the marketplace but no other provider is going to focus on the benefits of developing a smarter, more skilled workforce than your association.


To reach that objective CIPH’s Education and Training Council is tasked with identifying the opportunities and content to satisfy the needs of thousands of members, performing hundreds of different jobs; from the warehouse, to the design shop, to the executive office. It is challenged with trying to organize, package and promote these programs so that members continually develop the skills for our dynamic economy and country.


While this group is confident in its ability to survey the landscape its efforts are only enhanced by additional member feedback so if you have an idea for a course, or a topic, that you think will benefit your development please inform the committee by emailing Many of our most valuable efforts began as casual discussions. CIPH’s ability to take a suggestion and grow it into a learning opportunity continues to be an ongoing strength.


With the New Year approaching it is natural to take stock and plan ahead. Now is the time to commit to making industry training a powerful component of your competitive advantage. The world is getting ever more complex but CIPH is a simplifying force in identifying the right learning opportunities to help your team thrive. Please review the offerings currently available and be sure to regularly visit our webpages so you can plan your learning in the year to come.
