About the CIP Society

Since its formation in 1998, the CIP Society has been working to enhance the education, experience, and ethics of its members, who represent the graduates of the Insurance Institute’s Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) and Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) designation programs.


The CIP Society's mission is to foster and promote the education, experience and ethics of our members and the recognition of the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) and Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) designations as the premier designations in property and casualty insurance.


The CIP Society's vision is to be the foremost professional organization for those working in the property and casualty insurance industry in Canada. A division of the Insurance Institute, the Society was established by the Insurance Institute's Board of Governors in 1998.

Members of the Society are dedicated experts who have completed a rigorous qualification requiring several years of study leading to completion of national exams, strict adherence to a code of conduct and years of insurance experience. 


The CIP Society's membership is composed of graduates of the Insurance Institute's FCIP and CIP programs.
