The CCDAO is a peer-to-peer network where members come together three times a year to network with fellow data and analytics professionals, hear from experts, share successes and challenges, and gain knowledge of the latest thinking and practices in data analytics. Meetings are held in major cities across Canada. 

Upcoming Virtual Meetings and Events

Due to COVID-19, the CPO will be providing a series of virtual offerings (webinars and members-only sessions) until we are able to safely meet again in person. Stay tuned for new upcoming virtual events.
