The Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology was founded in 1975. Members are faculty from psychology departments and business schools, organizational practitioners, consultants, and students. Our mission is to:

  1. scientifically investigate behaviour and cognition at work;
  2. help organizations effectively manage their human resources; and
  3. help individuals realize their work goals.

CSIOP members receive a quarterly newsletter that takes a lively look at current I-O topics and provides advertising for I-O related products and services. CSIOP is particularly active at the annual CPA conference, offering professional workshops, prominent speakers, paper and poster sessions, and practitioner forums. CSIOP maintains an informative, updated website that includes job postings, internships, links to I-O programs in Canadian universities, and membership information.
