The Canadian Investment Performance Council (CIPC) is a fully independent, volunteer-based and self-governed organization with the goal of improving fair representation and full disclosure of investment performance in Canada. The CIPC was formed in 2008 as a national initiative of the Canadian CFA Societies, to promote adherence to the highest standards of ethical behaviour, encourage professional development through the CFA program and facilitate respectful open exchange of information and opinions.
The CIPC is currently recognized by the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) Executive Committee as the official sponsor of the GIPS Standards for the Canadian market. The mission of the CIPC is to provide a Canadian perspective and to promote and advance the GIPS Standards in Canada.
From time to time, the CIPC publishes articles and presentations on performance topics.
