In light of the Government of Canada and Ottawa Public Health’s recent recommendation to citizens to “not go out for non-essential reasons,” and to support the health, safety, and wellbeing of our staff, CIP’s physical office will be closed until further notice.

As of March 16, staff will be working remotely from home. Email is the preferred communication method at this time – please visit our contact page should you need email addresses. Please send general enquiries to

While CIP will strive to keep operations running as smoothly as possible, due to this situation, there may be a shortage in our capacity to deliver all services in a timely fashion. CIP will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and issued advice by the Canadian government and world, national, and local health agencies.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
