Established in 1953 by professional employees at the City of Ottawa, the Civic Institute of Professional Personnel (CIPP) has been the union for municipal professionals in the Ottawa region for more than 65 years. Today, we represent professionals who work for the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Community Housing.

Board of Directors

CIPP’s Board of Directors is elected from the membership at the Annual General Meeting.

Our members are the dedicated professionals who help make Ottawa a place where everyone can thrive. We’re passionate about our city and our public services – because we live here, too.


Our dedicated staff is here to help you!
