Welcome to GPOP!
GPOP, an acronym for Governance and President’s Office Professionals, is the shortened version of our formal name, CICan: GPOP/PGBDG.

Collectively, we are an independent national body made up of a network of peers who provide support to the Board or President/CEO of any public college, institution, cégep, university or other organization within the Canadian post-secondary education sector.

In launching our name, ratified in both English and French, we also proudly reflect our alignment with CICan: Colleges and Institutes Canada. Thus, we are CICan: Governance and President’s Office Professionals (GPOP) or, in French, Professionnels de la gouvernance et des bureau des directeurs généraux de CICan (PGBDG).

Please feel welcome to look around our site and if you are interested in learning more about membership, see our Join GPOP page.

    Hi, and thank you very much for stopping by the site and for your kind words; much appreciated – and you’re most welcome.

    We are all up to our eyeballs right now, but please watch for a draft PBSN/PNPA Terms of Reference (TOR), which will be presented at our AGM later this month in Ottawa.
