Organization of the CIA

The Institute is governed by a volunteer Board elected from the membership. Six councils carry out much of the Board’s work:

Each council oversees a selection of committees, subcommittees, and task forces staffed by member volunteers. These groups

  • Deal with various aspects of actuarial practice;
  • Collect and disseminate information of interest to actuaries;
  • Take care of the internal management of the profession and liaise between the Institute and external organizations; and
  • Deal with special, one-off issues.

The staff at the Head Office in Ottawa helps with the implementation of Board, council, and committee projects through publications, communications, member services, translation, volunteer support, maintaining the website, and professional development.
