CAIN Membership Council

The CAIN Membership Council is composed of General Member organization representatives for various regions in Canada. These individuals are member-elected and work with CAIN as advisors on its strategy, services, and impact - representing CAIN’s General Members.

The Membership Council was created through a nomination and election process administered by CAIN, where each General Member had an opportunity to nominate individuals and then later vote between nominees for their region. The Membership Council participates will be revisited annually and will always be member-chosen. For more information on our Membership Council, we invite you to read CAIN’s Membership Council Guiding Principles document (that all Council members have signed) that outlines items such as eligibility, commitments and accountability, conflicts of interest, and how CAIN is approaching creating a safe space for collaboration and conflict resolution. We welcome feedback on how we can improve, contact us.

We sincerely thank our Membership Council for the generous contribution of their time in service to their peers and to our collective efforts to improve the innovation landscape in Canada together.
