Regions and Branches

The Institute is comprised of six geographical Regions: Atlantic, Québec, Ontario, National Capital, Prairie/Northwest Territories and British Columbia/Yukon.

Each Region is normally structured to provide a minimum of three levels of organization consisting of: the Regional Council, the Regional Executive and Branches.The Directors elected in each Region may be the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Regional Executive and the Regional Council. The Regional Executive acts as a steering and administrative committee for the Regional Council and meets periodically between bi-yearly meetings. The objectives of the Regional Council are:

  • to support the goals of the Institute as they pertain to special concerns of the Region;
  • to present regional views at the AGM in the form of resolutions, or submit them to the Board of Directors and other decision-making bodies.

Institute Branches are listed under their respective Region page.
